Yeah, but it's just so annoying and cheesy

We were watching the Weakest Link last night and there was a Bealtes question... it went something like "which producer is sometimes considered to be the Fifth Beatle?" And the poor guy must have been so nervous, because he said "Paul McCartney"...   (shakehead1)

I liked her, she was mean  ;D

Why does it seem when they show british people on american television, they always have some kind of attitude.  Simon on American Idol, Chef Ramsey (I think he's Scottish though), that lady on Weakest Link, even the guy on So You Think You can Dance?

Not that I care, I love them all I think their great, especially Chef Ramsey (I have a crush on him  ;D )  And Simon on American Idol is awesome.  He always says exactly what I am thinking and I love that he has the guts to say it.

Oh I just thought of another one from an episode of Dr Who!  Thanks to two posts up ^^.  I'm not sure what the episode was called but the Doctor and the girl were trapped on a spaceship on a crash course to the sun and the girl and some other dude had to unlock doors by answering questions.  The one was "Who had the most pre-download hits, Elvis or The Beatles".  They ask the doctor and he doesn't know so he's trying to make himself think and then looks out a window and shouts "Here comes the sun!".  I thought it was funny (my high school math teacher, man I love that dude, kept that episode on until that part (he wanted to show us the part with the happy prime numbers)).

On the show That 70s Show, Hyde was wearing this shirt with some guy's profile and John Lennon on it.

And in this T-Mobile commercial, Hello Goodbye was playing for about 2 seconds in the background. It was the Beatles version, too.

Not really modern, but there's this Only Fools and Horses epi where Rodney is in a band, being the drummer, and Del Boy calls him Ringo ;D

And in a Midsomer Murders episode called The Axeman Cometh, there was also a drummer who got called Ringo.

And also, there was something in the paper last week... a photo of MPs walking to some meeting with the Prime Minister, and in the photo they were crossing the road Abbey-Road-style. Later there was a little article about the photographer, saying he did it on purpose this way coz he's a Beatlemaniac ;D

I was up late last night flipping channels and I came across this movie called Fletch (w/Chevy Chase).  he was in a hospital dressed up like a doctor when he faints.  As he was coming around a nurse asked him "Is there anything I can get you?" and he responds "Have you heard of The Beatles White Album?"

In Pulp Fiction, during the robbery at the diner, Jules (played by Samuel L. Jackson) keeps calling the British robber (played by Tim Roth) "Ringo."
