Talk:"Paul is dead" hoax
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
How about this: " On the cover of Abbey Road, Paul is the only Beatle shown not wearing shoes. This is often cited as evidence of his death, which is questionable, as the dead often have difficulty crossing roads, shoes or no shoes" People are often buried barefoot.

edit Perhaps only a "theory"?
While I undertsand why it opens with referring to it as an "urban legend" (so that it doesn't go too deep the other way and invite vandalism saying it's 100% factual), I wonder how this would instead introduced the concept as a "theory"? After all, most of the "evidence" provided is in a brilliantly neutral satirical tone ("The coincidence of an English man holding an English horn is too unlikely to dismiss"). This would fit better if the legend were presented as something speculated by actual scholars, not an outright "hoax". Of course, making such a change would probably involve a move, among other things, but I personally feel it would be worth it. —Lenoxus 02:35, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
edit Walrus costume
"1. The walrus on the Magical Mystery Tour cover is the real Paul 2. The walrus on the Magical Mystery Tour cover is the fake Paul, representing the death of the real Paul 3. Paul was actually a walrus
Most theorists omit the first option as unrealistic."
This isn't funny at all when you consider that Paul didn't wear the Walrus costume (though that's the story he tells people). John did. Not only has this been confirmed by Apple Corps CEO Neil Aspinal, but if you watch the Magical Mystery Tour film, you can see that Paul is wearing the same ring and bracelet as the hippopotamus, while the walrus wears none.
Score one for the Paul is Dead theorists.
