I have no idea what I just read. Was there a joke in there?
What you came across was a genuine, bonafide, SH.tv-approved, Beatard Lack-of-Witticismtm.
These lame attempts at "humor" are easily identifiable by looking for these tell-tale traits:
– it will contain a (likely obscure) reference to some aspect of Beatles' (or solo) history – it will contain a winking emoji [how else would they know it's supposed to be funny?] – it will by written by a SHite Beatard – it will be liked by a plethora of SHite Beatards
The SHite Beatards find the "joke" funny because they recognize the reference being made, while it confirms their unhealthy obsession with the anally-retentive minutiae of a band that has been defunct for nearly 50 years.
The non-SHite Beatard might recognize the reference, but fails to find any humor in it because he or she is too busy laughing at the SHite Beatard who poated the thing in the first place.
Thanks for breaking that down. I’ve never been in a Beatles thread over there, looks like I’m not missing much.
In an alternate universe, Blue Öyster Cult wrote a song, "Don't Fear the Onkyo." It never was a hit and instead, for the last 18 years the band has had a standing gig playing disco covers Tuesday through Saturday night at a Holiday Inn in Laughlin, Nevada.
Hee hee hee.
