RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Fun:Sir Paul McCartney

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Sir Paul and his violin bass. (This isn't even the only instrument he can play.)

Sir Paul McCartney (1942 - still alive) was the cute Beatle. He still likes to play at being cute.

Of all the Beatles, he is the one who truly enjoyed being a "rock star", performing concerts, etc...

When Paul was 16, he wrote "When I'm Sixty-Four", showing an early affinity for binary arithmetic.

Recent history[edit]

Always mindful of the plight of less fortunate people, Sir Paul McCartney decided to use a portion of his not inconsiderable wealth to support manual workers suffering from industrial injuries. Sadly, after his support of a one legged gold digger yielded nothing but bitter fruit[citation NOT needed], he abandoned his altruistic project.

Never forget[edit]

Despite all his accolades, musical talent, and position on rock and roll history, Paul McCartney is the most boring man in pop.
