RE: No Paul Theory
Whenever this theory is brought up I'm always reminded of Lennon's song "How do you sleep?" which was written for and about McCartney.

"Those freaks was right when they said you was dead
The one mistake you made was in your head"

You see. Freaks.


Thought I'd give the series watch and it is indeed hilarious.

Dramatic voice over :

"There's an open palm on above the head of McCartney - A SYMBOL OF DEATH!!!"

What so every time I wave at someone I'm saying I'm dead?

"Notice how just before the Sgt Pepper reprise John says bye - he's saying goodbye to Paul!!!"

The reprise is a goodbye from the fictional Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to the audience as in "we hope you have enjoyed the show, we're sorry but it's time to go.

"The opening verse of "A day in the life" is about Paul's car accident!!! - "He blew his mind out in a car"

So why does the crowd of people not recognise one of (arguably) the four most famous men in the world at the time then? "They'd seen his face before. Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords"

"On the Magical Mystery Tour Album cover Paul is dressed as a walrus, the symbol of death!!"

Hmmmm, maybe if you're scandinavian but the Beatles were um english. Also, the walrus reference is from the Lewis Carroll poem the Walrus and the Carpenter. Lennon was obsessed with Carroll. Lennon sees McCartney and himself as being either one of these characters which lead a load of oysters to a sticky eaten end. Lennon saw the oysters as the fans which were blindly following the beatles.

Throughout the end of the poem the walrus and the carpenter prepare to eat the oysters but the walrus has sympathy for the oysters and tinges of guilt.

A loaf of bread," the Walrus said,
"Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed--
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed."

"But not on us!" the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
"After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!"
"The night is fine," the Walrus said.
"Do you admire the view?

"It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf--
I've had to ask you twice!"

"It seems a shame," the Walrus said,
"To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!"
The Carpenter said nothing but
"The butter's spread too thick!"

"I weep for you," the Walrus said:
"I deeply sympathize."
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

"O Oysters," said the Carpenter,
"You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none--
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.

Read the whole poem it's available online. It's so much more interesting to see it in it's true intended light.

The reason Lennon would have said "The walrus was Paul" is because he would have changed his mind about "feeling sorry for the oysters" (the fans) In fact the song "glass onion" from which "the walrus was paul" lyric is taken is about and to the fans. It's a way of saying you're reading too much into us STOP IT!!! i.e. You're looking through a glass onion, through layers that aren't really there.

Sure the beatles would have had fun baffling and mesmerizing their fans with all kinds of imagery. Including ones referencing the Paul is Dead hysteria. They were scousers. Scousers are known for their wit.

The video makes September Clues look quite sensible.

debate is the vehicle of truth

RE: No Paul Theory
I've always suspected that the Paul McCartney's was swapped out. I heard it could be confirmed by looking at his jawbone - never bothered looking into it personally though. Good mind candy.

Doppelgangers walk among us everywhere in high places, all the time. The Saddam they executed was not the real one - his wife can testify to that one.
There are no others, there is only us.
