Good catch, Hello Goodbye! We are certainly sewing this case up.
More hard rabbit facts:
1. George was a vegetarian.
2. George was fleet of foot.
3. Ever since he was a lad, he loved gardens and digging in the dirt.
Say no more!!!
(humming) "Here goes Georgie Cottontail, running down the bunny trail..."Beatles lyrics
The other Beatles also appear to have been at pains to inform us (craftily) about George's true nature. I put in very little thought (trust me) to come up with two glaring examples:
1. Fixing a Hole: One of John's favorite books was Alice in Wonderland
. Right in Chapter 1 she goes "Down the Rabbit Hole" and meets the White Rabbit.
(see photos above).
By "fixing the hole" the Beatles are attempting to redirect the world away from stumbling upon the truth about their friend.
2. Rocky Raccoon:
-- The title features a four-legged furry animal whose name begins with "r"
-- "Rocky" was the name of George's guitar-- could Paul be
any more obvious?
Again, this song is clearly designed to protect their friend. Paul musically expresses his fears of George being hunted down and turned into wabbit soup.
I'm sure there are many more examples.
