future editor of the daily howl…
and a big left breast too!
Thank you Nick…
I thought about mentioning that minor detail. That might be why John has his right eye closed…
Look how tiny John looks ‘sandwiched’ in between those 2 classmates – does anyone know his age in this picture?
“careful kid, you’ll poke your eye out!”
Every youngster loves party hats!
Like…the place is surging with girls…:
John: “Please, Sir, can I have one to surge with, Sir”?
…”Sorry, girls…he’s married”…
should’ve been “sorry John…you’re married”…
married or not, he seems to have surged with plenty of girls – unfortunately, none of them was teenager lizzie from brazil! i confess i had to look up surge as i didn’t know what it meant. here are the definitions, for the foreigners visiting the blog: “To rise and move in a billowing or swelling manner. 2. To roll or be tossed about on waves, as a boat. 3. To move like advancing waves”. it sounds like i would have enjoyed rising and moving in a billowing or swelling manner with john, but now i don’t know what billowing means… oh brother, not another trip to google! well, let’s just say i would enjoy doing any of those 3 definitions with john, even not knowing exactly what they mean. lovely photo, by the way. p.s. where are ishie and cara when i need them???
i would have enjoyed, sorry – i type too fast!
Thank you, Lizzie, for that refreshing testimony…
(I felt the humidity rising)
…but, I love that line from a hard day’s night when Norm is telling the boys that “the whole place has gone potty!!! The entire place is surging with girls”.
When John’s reaction seems overtly ambitious(“Please, Sir, can I have one to surge with, Sir”?), Norm answers down to John “no you can’t” in a way that refuses to admit defeat in the ongoing battle of the wits.
I really like the press conference scene where the girl asks John “Do you have any hobbies?” …he takes her pad and pencil and you can watch him write something that ‘shocks’ her. If you watch closely, you can tell he wrote the word “TiTS”.
What a bad time to be married…
dear kwai, since the beatles never came to brazil, we used to watch their movies many, many times – it was the only way we could see them move! i’m talking close to or a bit over 100 times. so… i know just about every line that was spoken on them. i love the “tits” bit too! love his face after he writes it – priceless!
Though I admit to loving the discussion of surging (imagine being a little kid and hearing that on tv for the first time!), I want to answer Joy’s question.
@Joy ~ That’s not a school photo. John (who looks about 8 or 9 to me) is posed next to his cousin Liela/Leila (and her left breast) and two of Mimi’s boarders.
Surge on, everybody!
Being married did not prevent John from surging…
I’d say it was a bad time to be married to John.
