Excellent work, Hello Goodbye! The evidence is accumulating rapidly. Just a few more posts, and we'll have proven to the world that George Harrison was not merely the lead guitarist for the Beatles, but an actual rabbit, with habbits and affinities consistent with Oryctolagus cuniculus... er, rabbits.
I've been doing a little more research as well. Take this piece of telling evidence: the Playboy
interview with The Beatles published in February 1965. In it, George states, "There's no real fun in a Bunny's fluffy tail."How would he know that?
None of the Beatles hung out at the Playboy club. They considered that beneath them, an activity (to quote Ringo) "for dirty old men, not for the likes of us." How then does George come by this special insight into a Bunny's tail being no fun?
The only answer is... he had one.
Yes, as a rabbit he would have had to suffer the indignity of a bunny's fluffy tail. I submit for further evidence this George quote:
"I don't wear small shoes, or tight pants that squash your b***s."
Let's examine this statement in light of these recently unearthed facts.
"I don't wear small shoes..." What is he trying to tell us here? Why pick out shoes so specifically? In all the animal kingdom, what particular animal has the most urgent need for large shoes?
I leave it to you to determine.
As to the second part of the statement ("tight pants"), we know this was wishful thinking, because George did in fact wear tight trousers on many occasions. (I will spare you the details; just click on any George picture thread.) Now, the fact is that these trousers would be tight in front and in back. In short, I believe they put pressure on the bunny tail.
Chilling example: poor George is hoisted aloft at the Whiskey-a-Go-Go club following the Jane Masfield drink-throwing incident. You can almost feel the pressure on that poor bunny tail.
IMHO I believe that George was speaking from experience, but obliquely, as the Beatles often did. I believe he would be relieved that we fans picked up on these clues, and followed them through to the truth. No man is an island-- but he may be a rabbit. And I think we should accept and love him all the more for this startling revelation.
