Will The Real Billy Shears Please Stand Up!
I just saw this in my local paper and had to show it to you. Thanks Jim Borgman. For those of you too young to know or remember around the time that Mr. Hoffa disappeared there were rumors that Paul McCartney was dead. He was to also rumored to have been replaced by a look alike named Billy Shears. Mr. Shears, fictional or otherwise was reffered to a couple of times in the Beatles songs. Mostly on the Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album. He was suppose to have looked like Paul but sang like Ringo. The song A Day In The Life was suppose to be about the day Paul died. Morbid stuff but that is what the above cartoon is having fun with.
