    Still can’t believe only 1 Beatle has ever been knighted. Its like the people who decide these things decided the Beatles was Paul McCartney and the other 3. Never in history has there been a band that was such a solid collaboration between all the members.

    Blue(???…Purple) Blood is so overrated!
    Spelled POLITIK!
    Vanity and arteries are for Southerners
    …and, still no prefix(Sir…)
    I really wish those cheap tokens of appreciation had been in the Royal Trash Can near the exit…with a note saying “this ain’t over”
    (“you owe us”)

    That should be “I really wish those cheap tokens of appreciation had been FOUND BY THE JANITOR in the Royal Trash Can near the exit “

    Let me rephrase that:
    There may be an ‘Om’ in moment…
    but, there’s very few ‘folk’ in focus…
    not the first…not the last…not the least

    I thought John was too polite in his return, after HRH’s best Pilcher planted him, which caused him untold grief and drama for the next seven years.

    Ideally, John would have been basing his motivations on something other than the BBC(?) top 40 of the week. I mean, he only had one MBE…one opportunity to send Her his criticism with such a British accent. I wish he would have shared his intentions with an objective sympathizer. Cold Turkey slipped down the charts??? If that song WAS ever played on the radio, I doubt if Beatle fans ever even knew it. So, if that really is the reason for returning it, it might be better to reproduce the medal as cheaply as possible…and mail Her one every day, week, month, year or whenever the mood strikes. And, make sure the notes all say “it’s because Cold Turkey slipped down the charts”…then, She’ll feel it.
    I guess we should all be relieved that Her Majesty didn’t receive four genuine MBEs in the package…John having ‘borrowed’ the other three because “Mimi wants to see them”.

    Moments like this the Stones would have died for.
    Smoking joints before getting rewarded by the Queen.
    Totally out there.
