THE WEEKEND MAGAZINE: Money can't buy me sanity


Richard & Irina Porter


Richard I have Beatle pants; John Lennon’s face on my penis and Ringo Starr’s head on my arse. They were of course the single greatest cultural achievement of human kind. I am not exaggerating. Last year I corresponded with a man in the Iowa state correctional facility in the USA who had an envelope that George Harrison had once licked. I traded a few hours with our 7-year-old daughter Eleanor for it. She is more of Sutcliffe fan, so it was only fair.

Irina I do not like the Beatles. Of course, this is acute obsessive-compulsive disorder, which in his case manifests itself as an obsession with this particular beat combo, and an intensely overrated one at that. The incident with our daughter was his most extreme act to date. He claims he loves me for who I am, a simple girl from Georgia, but I think it might have more to do with the fact that Paul fingered me in a mop closet when I worked as a staff nurse at the hospice that cared for Linda.

Most disrespectful to the late Linda. Suitably crude about the ghastly Macca.
Masterful.

It just HAD to be that photo of McCartney, didn't it? JeZUSS!

More of a Sutcliffe fan, that's rather disturbing.
