He appeared in the last installment (I can't remember the name because I don't care enough about it) as Rey's father, because we've all been wondering where Rey got her mysteriously miraculous powers of rhythm and timekeeping.

Which Beatle moved to London first, and why?

The correct answer is Ringo. After Ringo was born, his family moved to London where he grew up for the remainder of his childhood until he turned 16. This was due to the fact that he wanted to live in the "South", as seen in western and cowboy movies. His overly eager parents and grandma, who loved their son so, misinterpreted it an instead moved to the south of England, and lived there ever since. Ringo was then dubbed by everyone in school as the cowboy of Westminster, and became a prominent child actor on TV for the show "Lil Ringo the Brave". Thus, Richard Starkey was then dubbed Ringo Starr , and the name stuck until today.

Where did Ringo learn to shoot a revolver through an apple on top of Paul's head?

Ringo's marksmanship skills were the result of a shooting lesson conducted by Waylon Jennings, who had joined a supergroup assembled by Ringo, "The Roustabouts of Rhythm", alongside Bill Withers, Ted Nugent and Tiny Tim.

Complete the song title: "I Only Want To _____ With You".

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

"I Only Want To Bake With You".

John's ode to wanting to bake a pumpkin and cheese loaf with Paul which he demoed in 1977, a cracking upbeat song that covers the ingredients required and steps in making it. This was reported to being the third reunion single but the three couldn't agree with the use of cream cheese and so it was ditched. Rumours surfaced that it would become the signature tune to 'The Great British Bake Off' but it never materialised.

Where did Brian and John go during their holiday at the end of April 1963? What did they do there?

How did George respond to Bernard "Pretty" Purdie's claim that he was responsible for all the lead guitar parts on Beatles records?

Naturally, George was upset when he heard that someone was trying to take credit for all of the guitar parts he had so lovingly crafted with his bandmates over the years. He left the room with furrowed brow and walked slowly out into the garden. When he came to his favorite spot among the weeping Atlas cedars, he sat down, closed his eyes, and meditated. After about seven and four-thirds minutes Lord Krishna came to him on a flaming lotus and whispered, "Worry not, my faithful one. Karma shall make all right in the end." George opened his eyes in wonderment at this vision and returned to the house a changed man. He decided to take up sitar in order to properly praise Lord Krishna and not worry too much about guitar parts, which is what he did for the next couple of years, barely playing guitar at all outside of the studio, until the day Lord Krishna returned to him and told him he was a better guitarist than he ever would be a sitar player, and that wasn't what he had meant, whereupon George promptly took up slide guitar and started praising Lord Krishna in earnest, and in much better technical style.

Was George just tripping the whole time? Show your work.

George was indeed hallucinating the whole time. If all this were true, it won't be Lord Krishna, but rather Mother Mary appearing to him, speaking words of wisdom: "Let It Be ", in his hour of darkness standing right in front of him, whispering words of wisdom: "Let It Be ". Thus, it's reasonable to assume that George was sleeping this whole time.

Who was the biggest teddy boy in the Beatles?

Some say John, some say Ringo or George.

But as far as the Beatlesbible is concerned, there can only be one Teddy boy!: https://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/all-together-now/congrats-joe-and-ellie/

As part of the successful business deal Brian arranged with Nicky Byrne, the individual Beatles each received a complimentary box of 50 Beatle wigs. How did the boys put them to use?

The Beatles decided to donate them all to the High Court of the United Kingdom, giving them permission to use it during court sessions. As a result, judges would abandon the white bigwigs of yester-year in favour for Beatles moptops during hearings and sessions.

Why was "Savoy Truffle " written?

Paul wanted to do it in Penny Road; unfortunately, road repairs made this unfeasible, so he opted for Abbey Lane instead.

What really happened between John and Brian in Spain?

A very heated game of backgammon. John apparently lost pretty badly and flipped the table, causing a checker to go flying up poor Brian's nose.

On the cover of Revolver , next to Klaus's likeness, is his name: Klaus O.W. Voormann. What does the O.W. stand for?

The pain and tears that doing the cover put him through, as he hadn't picked up a pen in years and his drawing muscles were atrophied, and also he cut himself doing the cutouts five and a half times.

Name 3 ways the Beatles prophetically predicted the future.

In a post somewhere on the forum, someone said they could imagine me in the part of the woman interviewed by Eric Idle in this scene of All You Need is Cash.

I started thinking about this the other day and hoped that I wouldn't start giving answers like we give in this thread. LOL

Come on, fellas, Keep the funniest thread of all time alive!

1- George ate 16 biscuits every day of the Abbey Road sessions and the Album ended up having 16 tracks (he also ate some crumbles everyday, representing Her Majesty )

2- John wrote a song called How Do You Sleep for Paul McCartney , predicting Paul waking up every morning.

3- The Beatles went to Hamburg in the early sixties and figuratively brought down the house, predicting the fall of the Berlin wall (Hamburg isn't Berlin but #CloseEnough)

What famous incident happened during their concert at candlestick park?

All the giant candlesticks started to melt due to the major increase of temperature caused by the combined high kinetic energy of thousands of teenage girls. Big blobs of hot wax started to drip onto the stage and the Beatles themselves, disrupting their playing. After the concert was over, the globs of wax were used to sculpt the on-point wax figures of the Beatles by Madame Tussauds.

Why is Ringo? How? Where? Show your work.
