I’m torn, torn, torn!!, this pic in my on going ‘Fab Flatulence’ series has me in a quandary, i have titled it a ‘Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrat!!’ but there is no way the anus would make an audible ‘Brrrrrrrrat!’ sound under water, i considered ‘Frrrrrrrrrat!’ but again the H20 element precludes any such harshness of evacuation, as far as my studies have shown it would be more a rounded (but not soft) ‘Phwut Phwut Phwut!!’ you must take into account the side pressure on each rectum cheek, so tho titled a ‘Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrat! it is in all probability a ‘Phwut – blub blub blub’ i promise in future to try and strive for more accuracy in my blurter descriptions.

    Hi. Great photo blog you have. I have a color version of this photo which I purchased at a Beatles Convention some years ago. The only other time I’ve seen it in color is when it was used on the cover of ‘Life’ magazine.

    Frankly, I wish you wouldn’t bother. You post a lot of great pics here, many of which I’ve never seen (and I’ve seen my share, believe me)… but I could live without the juvenile fart jokes.

    Hi Johnny, you may have noticed that i dont like to keep this blog serious, the world is WAY too serious and the most serious i want to get is the study, appreciation and wonderment at flatulance, i take my bodily functions serious :-)

    Only today i’ve decided i’m going to be posting some of my old articles and reviews that have been printed over the years in various fanzines, if the think a strained look of possible rectal discomfort in a photo of the Fabs is tasteless and juvenile wait till you read some of these articles :-)

    Beatles get stabbed, Beatles get shot .. the world is harsh, i want to go to a place where the discussion of weather angling your arse on a pane of glass will enhance the volume and tonality of an arse scorching fart is all thats important .. but thats just me.

  6. Tammy says:

    Oh! one more thing, you may not know this but no amount of match lighting can disperse a noxious fart, this has been scientificaly proven .. as well as private study by myself.

    well If you MUST make jokes,
    make sure they are actually funny.

    I’m sorry, i’m actually quite offended by your assumption that i’m joking, this is actually quite a serious topic for me.

    johnny b,

    until you produce your own blog with interesting beatles pics or beatles info, kindly shut your pie hole & return to the rock you live under.

    Hi, thanks for your support and understanding, i think Johnny b may be coming around to the appreciation and respect my intensive study and knowledge deserves, after all he did let slip (boom tish) that he knows about lighting a match when confronted with a rather pernicious, pungent and noxious arse ripping, eye watering fart .. alas the match theory is nothing more than an old wives tale, and after having smelt what has often escaped from old wives tails no wonder they made that story up. Most of my adult life has been dedicated to the study and documentation of the Beatles nether regions, you have your Sulpy’s and Winn’s etc who are the experts in unreleased recordings, Lewisohn has the day by day stuff covered but yet i’m hammered and pilloried for my deep knowledge and study and appreciation and yes bugger it i’m going to say it ‘WONDERMENT’ at all things rectally Fab!? are people trying to convince me that not once during a recording session or whilst being filmed that the Fabs didnt hiss out a botty burp every now and then?, but oh no .. it’s perfectly fine to discuss the edit points in Strawberry Fields?, the same arse critics who sit at home wearing their tortoise shell coke bottle glasses memorising matrix numbers and run out groove messages, we’ll see who’s laughing one day when MY book is published, when I’M sitting on a panel at Beatlefest with Elliot Mintz and Martin Lewis discussing the fact that it was probably a bout of acid fuelled gastric that brought about the guffaws on the laughing version of ‘And your bird can sing’
