Karen in Ohio

Your last line! Made me pee.

Elaine Viets


Catriona McPherson

Smells like misogyny to me.

Charlaine Harris

Urban myth. I went to a Beatles concert very early, and there was no such thing. Ridiculous.

Elaine Viets

I agree, Catriona. I haven't seen any women 'fessing up, just men. I see some major jealousy too.

Elaine Viets

Good. That's two for the urban myth, folks.

Marcia Talley

Nonsense! It's football stadiums that smell like piss.

Marcia Talley

PS. I took my little sister, Debbie, to see Hard Days Night when she was 11 because Mom wouldn't let her go alone. Huge theater in Washington DC, ambulances waiting outside, etc. If the movie had music or dialog, it would have been impossible to tell, what with all the screaming. And definitely no pee.

Elaine Viets

I knew it. Women don't do that sort of thing, especially not young ones. Every woman there wanted to meet the Bealtes -- and hoped it would happen -- but not with wet pants.


I was there also, with my BFF and 23,000 of my closest friends. We were all dressed in our best clothes, just in case we got to meet one of them. (Yes, we really thought that could happen.)It rained the entire performance.

Now, if he had been speaking of those same girls today, most of us at are at an age when we multitask -- cough (or laugh) and pee at the same time...

Elaine Viets

Sad but true, Carolyn.

Karen in Ohio

Which explains my comment above, Carolyn. :-)

Marcia, and every stairwell in the world smells like pee, and not because of women, either.

Elaine Viets

I agree with you about the stairwells, Karen. I take them in hotels and buildings if I can. Yuck!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Ah, disgusting. And really--creepy.

BTW, I was at the Beatles concert at The INdianapolis Coliseum in 1964. They were wonderful, completely wonderful. As for the looming question here--I wouldn't even consider thinking about it.

And I agree Carolyn! We ALL really thought we might meet them.

Elaine Viets

That settles it. Gentlemen, you're wrong. Quit ruining our beautiful memories. We loved the Beatles then, we still love them now.
