The latest trans-Atlantic trend swap's got the Queen and Sir Paul stealing a page from the U.S.-led "Eat The View" kitchen garden revival and the Meatless Monday movement.
Allow me to fill you in on all the dangerous, deadly, evil subtexts to your favorite fond memories...so that you'll never be so foolish as to enjoy them for what they are on their faces, again!
People who haven't memorized Shakespeare's First Folio. You will be asked to recite it from memory at Passport Control. Even if you're on a connecting flight.
