    Turn me on, dead man.

    Here's a site listing the "evidence" supporting the long running conspiracy theory of Paul McCartney's early death and subsequent replacement by a look-a-like. I think every Beatles fan has heard of this at one point or another. I'd just never seen all the reasoning laid out like this before.
    Some of this stuff will make even the most ardent Smiley Face Killer believer blush.

    Enjoy.

    So let me get this straight, Paul McCartney is dead, but Elvis is alive?

    Re: Turn me on, dead man.

    I thought the Beatles inserted those hints on purpose? Though obviously Paul was alive, just for a laugh... you know, they said "The Walrus is Paul" in Glass Onion, and the Walrus was supposed to be some symbol of death.

    Anyways I think the hints are real but it was a joke. Pretty cool though, thanks for the link!

    He's actually living in Costa Rico with Elvis and Tupac.

    "Hey, you remember when you were with The Beatles and you were supposed to be dead and, uh, there were all these clues, like if you played a song backwards, it said "Paul is Dead"? That was a hoax, right?"

    This is a joke right? How could anyone believe that? If you believe that, or even think that it is possible, you are a ******* moron.

    The Walrus wasn't death, it was the Walrus from the Walrus and the Carpenter story from "Through the Looking Glass." At least that's what John based it on when he wrote it.

    That's entertaining. It's fun to think about things like that.

    Actually, Paul faked his own death to train for his pro wrestling career, where he would eventually become the second Ultimate Warrior. And now you know the rest of the story...
