I still haven’t recovered from the Times of London’s chimichanga-flashing interview of date-rape-apologist Helen Mirren, but I did enjoy this fully-clothed interview the paper conducted with my almost-husband, Paul McCartney.
I do think Paul (and everyone else) should stop worrying about fools who still gripe about who broke up the Beatles. Many of us have left crap jobs. That’s all that he did. Plus his colleagues were sporting dirty-looking beards and holding bed-ins! Anyone with sense would be outta there.
Anyway, check out the article here. Also, you can check out the tape of Almost-Husband’s comment on John Lennon’s death. Unlike what I always read, “Drag, isn’t it,” was not his first comment. I find it all very forgivable because he’s obviously stunned.
McCartney’s frequently displayed thumbs-up pose and use of the word “veggie”? Now, those things are unforgivable.
After this picture was taken, the seal grabbed a club and beat the hell out of them.
In my dreams.
That seal looks positively ferocious.

Paul seemed a little flipitty-flip-flip. I hope, like you say, that he was just in shock. I am sure your Paul wouldn’t be so glib if he found out a dear friend of his had just died.

the little baby seal is thinking who are these strange things and why are they bothering me. i am scared….
Ashe Mischief says
Poor little seal baby! He looks utterly confused and frightened.
Bad Paul and Batshit Heather for freaking out unsuspecting animals!
“Drag isn’t it?’
God…what a thing to say though I am sure he didn’t know what to say at the time.
I am sure if I was asked about a friend’s death or past workmates death my respone would be:
Sharon Rose says
Hi there-a great quote, most definitely! I can imagine my boys saying that, particularly when pulled away from their beloved Playstation 3!!
That would be a great epitaph.
From the look of the clip, it seems like McCartney must have been feeling some very complicated emotions about Lennon when he was accosted by the reporter outside the studio that day. He did look stunned. I can imagine that it would be difficult to say how he felt about Lennon’s death on the street, to a complete stranger, with no time to prepare. I wouldn’t have wanted to be in his shoes.
Loved the seal’s story, hehe made me laugh
All seals should be issued clubs at birth, and deer, rifles. In Alaska, wolves and bears should have helicopters with sharp-shooters and maybe bomb-dropping capabilities.
It’s only fair.
You are hilarious Wendy!
This blog suddenly became NSFW, because whenever I read it I start laughing and choking.
Today’s word: thens.
“That was thens, this is now.”
Pamela Terry and Edward says
You have exquisite taste. Paul is a gem. And, a genius.
That would be the awesomest tombstone every!
That poor little seal looks freaked out. At least he knows when to turn his back on crazy.
Surprised Heather didn’t beat the seal with her leg, or lack thereof.
Rebecca Ramsey says
You are too funny!
Poor little seal baby. No wonder he’s trying to escape!
That seal is too cute.
I really dislike Paul macartney or that fool he was married too.
So the seal stole the show… One of my favourite animals. Two juxtapositions next to each other heeh
you are so funny!
I didn’t know that he was a total dork. Hmmm. I’m with you, Wendy, on all fronts.
t is adoreable 🙂
thnx for the comments 🙂
Miss Karen says
Heehee this post had me giggling from the word go! I’ve always had a soft spot for Paul circa his Jane Asher courting years…she was just as cute as that club seal.
petite and dynamite says
thanks for the paul clip — i never saw that.. see how a little nothing statement can be taken out of context ? and the photo of heather with the seal — are you sure that’s Paul with her ? and not angela langsbury ?? meow…
cough, cough, fur balls..
Grant Miller says
God bless, Paul. Honestly, each of the Beatles could have done whatever after the Beatles and it would be okay. They were Beatles – they’ve got the eternal-get-out-of-jail-free card for life.
Incidentally, I’m vegetarian and Paul and Linda were a great inspiration in those first few meaty holidays without meat.
Linda Famularcano says
Haha that would certainly be a surprising choice of tombstone sayings. I say go for it although if I saw that on a grave, I’d laugh and feel disrespectful since I’d be laughing in a graveyard.. not exactly a good thing to be doing lol (^_^)
