My almost-husband Paul McCartney is on my good side today, thanks to his appearance on The Colbert Report. Some viewers are on my bad side for their online comments saying that almost-MrB didn’t “get it.” WTF? I’m resigned to people having poor reading comprehension but poor TV comprehension is a new low. As you’ll see from the video, Paul played along nicely, naming Ringo as his favorite Beatle and saying that if he had to eat part of himself, he’d start with the midriff. He looks a little spaced out, but the guy’s been smoking pot for 40 years. Of course, he looks spaced out! That’s why you should Just Say No to drugs.
I liked this bit of conversation, which came after Paul said he’d never seen the show, leading Stephen Colbert to say he didn’t know the Beatles.
Paul: “What if I’ve seen your show?”
Colbert: “I’m a huge fan.”
Paul: “Yeah, I love your show.”
Colbert’s intro is great too.
I would give this interview two thumbs up except the thumbs-up sign really annoys me. Oh, damn you, McCartney! Put those things away, already.
