Ha!
Ha! What would have given the joke an extra level would have been to draw the doctor as Eric Burdon.
Yeah now that would've been great.

I wonder if the 70 year old Burdon still likes to fuck with eggs.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Reduced to using those egg substitutes that come in cardboard packages. Rather sad, really.

I've heard he's still a bit of an animal.

I was just reminded by revbob's Wings Over America — was reading an old '70s interview with Macca around punk times where he complains about both people telling him to be more socially conscious and the Mary Whitehouses of the world:
Paul stops dead. "Oh God. I can just see it on the front page. WINGS SPEAK OUT. Mary Whitehouse, social awareness, punk."
"What about Abba?" asks Linda.
"Oh yeah," says Paul. "We gotta do Abba. Abba — the thinking man's Manhattan Transfer."
🤣🤣🤣

Excuse my incoming ignorance.

A few Christmases ago, John Lewis (department store over here) released a festive ad featuring a song called Real Love by Tom what's-his-name. I thought it was quite a nice warm track, lovely melody. A few months pass and I'm told it was actually written by Lennon. Finding the original on Anthology 2, I was blown away by how I never knew and by how spectacular it was.

Beautiful song. It always seemed like a love letter from the survivors to John, returning his song to him.

It was much better than Free As a Bird, should have been the lead track for the Anthology series. Saying that, I like Free As a Bird as well.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I'm pretty pro-FAAB, too. I'm unashamedly sentimental in those Threetles songs. One last offering of the magic.
