The first draft of the Beatles' 'Yesterday' ran as follows.

"Scrambled eggs
Oh my baby, how I love your legs
Not as much as I love scrambled eggs."

And this is why John wrote most of the Beatles' lyrics. You can see this level of lyricism pop up again during Paul's solo career.

Bip bop, bip bip bop / Bip bop, bip bip band / Dig your bottom dollar / Put it in your hand

Or, even better:

I'm gonna do it to you, gonna do it / Sweet banana, you'll never give up / We're gettin' hi hi hi in the midday sun

Paul McCartney should stick to playing bass and occasionally fronting a Nirvana reunion show (this actually happened).

If you paste text on Google translator, you can have use the listen tool to have it read for you.

It's somewhat nice to do it with RPG books.

During pre-production for Boaz Davidson's 1987 film Going Bananas (written by Menahem Golan and released by the Cannon Group), Davidson and Golan originally intended to have the character of Bonzo the Ape be portrayed by an orangutan named Manis (best known for portaying the character Clyde in 1978's Every Which Way But Loose, opposite Clint Eastwood). Golan eventually went so far as to schedule a boardroom meeting with Manis in which Golan pitched the script to the orangutan. According to Golan and Davidson, the orangutan declined, and the role of Bonzo ended up going to the human actor/stuntman Deep Roy (Blake's 7, Big Fish, Star Trek) dressed in an ape costume.

The role of Andre "The Puppetmaster" Toulon in Charles Band's 1999 direct-to-video prequel film Retro Puppet Master was apparently difficult to cast. Though numerous actors tried out for the role (including a pre-fame James Franco), the role eventually went out to 20-year-old Greg Sestero (in his earliest credited film appearance), who was hired on the spot due to his ability to speak with a French accent.

The album cover art to Canadian rock band Rush's 1981 album Moving Pictures is a visual pun on the title, and a triple entendre. The first meaning is represented by the movers carrying pictures, with the second by the people watching them who are emotionally moved by the pictures. The third meaning is shown on the back cover, where the entire scene is revealed to be a set for a motion picture.

The film crew shown on the back cover actually shot the scene with motion picture film, and the album's front cover is a single frame from this film. This was revealed to Rush concertgoers several years after the album's release, when the still image was projected on a large screen behind the band, and then suddenly came to life as a full-motion film sequence.

Though originally released in 1981, Moving Pictures was played live in its entirety for the first time to open the second set of each show during Rush's 2010–11 Time Machine Tour.

I never really grasped how annoying this was until they put Courage the Cowardly Dog on Boomerang...

The 1982 TV-Movie (starring Anthony Andrews, Sam Neill, and John Rhys-Davies [and Julian Glover in a rare good-guy part as King Richard the Lionheart]) is shown in Sweden on every News Year Day.

A Swedish kid's show when I was little used the Beatles "Obla-di, obla-da" as its theme tune, meaning I'm one of the few people who actually enjoy that song.

When Donald Sumpter (probably most famous as Maester Luwin in early Game of Thrones seasons these days) appeared as "The President" in the last episode of Doctor Who season 9 (Hell Bent), it was his third appearance on the show.

The first one was as "Enrico Casali" in the 1968 episode The Wheel in Space (with Patrick Troughton as the Doctor), and the second was as "Commander Ridgeway" in the 1972 episode The Sea Devils (with Jon Pertwee as the Doctor).

During an early 1960 tour, several members of The Silver Beetles (later known simply as The Beatles), adopted pseudonyms: singer/guitarist John Lennon became Long John; lead guitarist George Harrison became Carl Harrison (after "Blue Suede Shoes" singer Carl Perkins), bassist Stuart Sutcliffe became Stuart de Staël (after painter Nicolas de Staël), and singer/guitarist Paul McCartney became Paul Ramón (note that The Silver Beetles did not at this point have a drummer.

In 1974, musician Douglas Colvin began calling himself "Dee Dee Ramone," in homage to McCartney, and his new as-of-yet-unnamed band (composed of ex-members of Tangerine Puppets and Sniper) decided to take "Ramone" as both a pseudonymous surname and band name. Over the years, the Ramones have included numerous members, including bassist/singer Dee Dee Ramone (Douglas Colvin), guitarist Johnny Ramone (John Cummings), singer Joey Ramone (Jeffrey Hyman), drummer/producer Tommy Ramone (Tamás Erdélyi), drummer Marky Ramone (Marc Bell), drummer/singer Richie Ramone (Richard Reinhardt), drummer Elvis Ramone (Clement Bozewski), and bassist/singer C.J. Ramone (Christopher Ward).

"LOL" or "lol" (IPA pronunciation: /lɑl/, /loʊl/), derived from an acronym for laugh(ing) out loud, a popular element of Internet slang, was first documented in the Oxford English Dictionary in March of 2011. Those of you who feel that this is a corruption of the language should remember that the common English word "goodbye" derives from the Middle English abbreviation "godbwye" ("God Be With Ye"), which started being fully pronounced during the Early Modern period and eventually arrived at its modern spelling.

Honey keeps a long time. Like, REALLY long. Honey found by modern archaeologists in the tombs of Pharaohs was still edible.

Anything dry enough, salty enough, or sugary enough keeps virtually forever. Jam opened and then left for a decade in the fridge will most likely be perfectly fine. The only way to get something to keep even longer is to remove all oxygen from it. Tin cans and bog corpses both function along that principle. But if you DO get a little air in, the environment will become anaerobic, opening the door to infection by various anaerobic bacteria. Of these, clostridium botulinum is the best-known. It has a poison, among the strongest poisons known to man, that causes paralysis. Of course, this poison is what people inject in their foreheads to look younger, botox.

If you have honey that has been unused long enough to crystallize, it hasn't gone bad; some people prefer the crystallized honey as it takes longer to "melt" in your mouth and is usually less sweet. To return your honey to liquidness, fill a 1-1/2 to 2 quart mixing bowl 3/4 full with water, and microwave it for around 4-5 minutes (until hot, but not boiling). Then set your honey jar in the bowl of hot water and allow the crystallized honey to re-melt.
