@AppleScruffJunior told us that one a while back. The phrase "Do, do me love" would have kept the song off the air.

Why did Paul turn down the offer to go with John and Brian to Spain?

He went off with Pete Best, which he had to keep secret from George Martin.

Lots of things! Earl Grey, Chewing Gum, Heroine, Biscuit crumbles and a parched octopus. Only the octopus inspired their songwriting.

Canada. Everyone knows it wants to be the US and Brian was happy to compromise.

 

Where was the last Beatles concert performed?

Trick question. It wasn't *performed*; the Beatles were actually being themselves. 

How did the Beatles get from Rishikesh to the Apple Rooftop?

Russia of course.

 

He was Lenfrom Russia, then left it, in other words, went Lennout and later got back Lenin.

 

Nobody ever noticed because people were too busy pointing their fingers at Faul McCartney for being the obvious soviet spy (Back In The USSR ).

 

Name the fourth Beatle: Rory Storm, Eric Clapton, Allen Klein and...?

Allen Klein. He wrote his own banknotes and accounts and them filed them thru Apple (that’s a joke to all the lawyers getting their lawsuits typed up as they read this).

 

What did Paul record himself doing in December 1965 to give to the other Beatles as a Christmas present?

Recording his notes to Barry Miles for his biography Many Years From Now, specifically the parts where he made his claims about his contributions to John's songs.
