I think the funniest Beatle quote I ever heard was when George and John were vacationing in Tahiti. They chartered a boat and became regular sea dogs.

Only John forgot to wear his glasses, so this one day he was peering over the boat’s railing when he shouted to George: ‘Hurry, George, I see a dirty big fish and he’s wearing sun glasses.’

Being a good friend, George dutifully rushed over and looked down at the water. 'John, me lad,’ George said seriously, 'that ugly fish is you.’

Yeah, well it was too. John can’t see much without his glasses (he suffers from 'Dear Susan’s affliction) and that 'dirty big fish’ was indeed John’s own reflection.

Most of the time I like your headcanons but sometimes you write the girls, who are meant to be pure honorable heroines, as whores who get tattoos and use dildos and it's gross.

1) a vibrator and a dildo are not the same thing but you’re probably 14 so it’s fine that you don’t know the difference 

2) tattoos and orgasms don’t make a woman any less honorable or heroic and I would encourage you to look at the men you admire to see if those same qualities make you respect them any less. 

3) please love yourself.

“[On 20 April 1976] George, wearing the uniform of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, appears unannounced with his friends the Monty Python comedy team at New York’s City Center, at West 55th Street, during their performance of ‘The Lumberjack Song’. He had, in fact, been watching the first half of the show from the audience and went backstage at the interval. The Python team, starting a three-week run at the venue, invited him to join the cast during the song. ‘George is a lumberjack freak. He used that song on his tour to introduce the show,’ says Nancy Lewis, Monty Python’s American manager. (Incidentally, the former Beatle is such a fan of the song that, when George and Olivia go on holiday during the late Seventies and early Eighties, he will ue the name 'Jack Lumber’ as an alias.)” - The Beatles Diary - Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001

Monty Python also appeared at the Concert for George on 29 November 2002: here.

“I first met Michael Palin and Terry Jones in 1972, I think. I met Eric Idle in 1975, at the California premierè of the Holy Grail film. And although that was the first time I’d ever met him, I felt like I’d known them all for years, because I’d watched all the programs and had had them on videotape. So it only took ten minutes before we were the best of friends.
I think after the Beatles, Monty Python was my favorite thing. It bridged the years when there was nothing really doing, and they were the only ones who could see that everything was a big joke.” - George Harrison, Rolling Stone, 19 April 1979

“Monty Python. Eric (Idle) is incredible. Michael Palin too. He is very funny. They all are. They filled that empty space for me; after 1968, 1969, they really kept me going, you know.” - George Harrison, I Me Mine
