“We put in a joke or two. ‘A four of fish and finger pie’. The women would never dare say that, except to themselves. Most people wouldn’t hear it, but ‘finger pie’ is just a nice little joke for the Liverpool lads who like a bit of smut.” - Paul McCartney.
6. “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?”
“I was up on a flat roof meditating and I’d see a troupe of monkeys walking along and a male monkey just hopped on the back of this female and gave her one, as they say in the vernacular. Within two or three seconds he hopped off again and looked around as if to say, ‘It wasn’t me’. She looked around as if there’d been some mild disturbance. I thought, ‘That’s how simple the act of procreation is’. We have horrendous problems with it, and yet animals don’t.” - Paul McCartney.
- Justice Antonin Scalia, the conservative heart of the U.S. Supreme Court for more than a decade, has died. He was 79.
- Scalia was the current court's longest-serving justice, having been nominated in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.
- Republicans are extremely unlikely to confirm anyone that President Obama nominates in the final months of his second term.
