Tiny Beatles or Big Broad?



This is an ad from a magazine back in 1965. Look carefully. It claims it is a life size poster of the Beatles.

Now either the gal holding the 'life-sized' poster is an Amazonian Princess or the Beatles were just four talented Lilliputians.

Or the ad was just lying.

(I like the Rolling Stones better than the tiny Beatles)

What's wrong with tiny Beatles?

JohnLennon said...

I'd rather be a tiny Beatle than a shot in the face Beatle.

PaulMcCartney said...

I'd rather be cute than tiny or shot in the face.

You can get into Six Flags for free if you eat a Live Beatle during Halloween.

Oh sorry- I meant a cockroach.

But tiny Beatles are fine-they were bigger than Jesus, according to John Lennon.

Not that I know how big Jesus was, exactly.

Bemisdown said...

Or was that Lenin?

ALWAYS get the two confused.

I Ain't No Oprah said...

Jesus was pretty big...if you know what I mean.

Nooprah,

How do you know so much about Jesus anyway?

Care to share?

I Ain't No Oprah said...

I read about Jesus in a book. In a big book. Ending was kinda sad.

And I think there was a BIG chunk missing from the middle.

Most of the missing parts contain advertising. No big loss.

I saw the Beatles once. They really were tiny, about 3 1/2 feet tall. Ringo was barely 3 feet. It was the funniest thing. I'm surprised no one's mentioned this before. Always on the cutting edge, nono.

Cool! The Beatles were actually hobbits!

(I was busy away from the computer today...it didn't actually take me ALL DAY to come up with that lame comment. I swear...)

Bemisdown said...

Lamont,

Did the advertising include those free samples of new perfume smells?

Because I know some people complained that they were allergic. Maybe that's why those pages are missing.

Amazonian Princess said...

I like the Stones better, too.

Excellent call! Some of the missing pages featured a fragrance launched by Pete Best called "The Sweet Smell of Success."

It did not do well.

Best, incidentally, was known as "The Tall Beatle" during his brief tenure with the band.

Yer right, NoOprah, today's post WAS lamer than yesterday's.

Loser.

bacon ace said...

To be fair he was probably doing that yard work he was telling me that he would be doing...in the rain....which is why he didn't enrich our lives with more of his unique humor.

cake said...

OR he was lying on the couch, watching tv, movies and baseball, and eating Fritos, because the rain gave him an excuse NOT to do yardwork...the huge slacker.

Nooprah, I think you should order the poster.
Such a deal for $1.98 and if you're not completely satisfied (and really, who ever is these days?) you'll get your money-back guaranteed! Just a thought.
