[music |Imagine]

After John Lennon was asassinated in late 1980, letters of sympathy poured in to his widow from all over the world. Unable to cope with the stacks of mail which inundated her, Yoko Ono wrote a full page letter of thanks and placed it in newspapers all over the world. The cost of the ad was $200,000.00 making it the most expensive thank you note in history.

Definitely. I guess I always thought she was kind of a bitch. But I'm more about the Beatles and Paul, then just John's genius. I think the two worked best as a team. And I CAN'T STAND Paul's new wife. So what, she's an amputee so we have to be nice about her. No. She's a dumb bitch. Anyway...

I'm pregant.

No, not really. ;) I just think I might have had a couple too many cigarettes at lunch with a friend.

Don't worry, nay-sayers. My son wasn't exposed to any smoke.

OMG! I was totally going to freak out and find you if you were really pregnant! Don't scare a random friend like that! :)

Cigarettes are bad! Bad, bad, bad! :)

Cigarettes can be great.

And so can pregnancies.

Just not as a combination. ;)

"Dear America,

Thank you so much for your outpourings of love now that John has finally kicked the bucket and left me all of his money and they royalties to his songs. I plan on using these wonderful words to give you a tear filled $200,000 alibi, then poke fun at the remaining Beetles by waving the songs that they haven't released in front of their faces like a carrot. I shall start a singing career that will make all of you want to stick hot skewers in your ears, and then as an ultimate insult, I will sell my wonderful late husband's music to Michael Jackson while giving you all the finger.

As an apology, I shall let my angel of a son Julian sing only one album, at which point he shall fade into obscurity, only leaving the warbling cries of yours truly, which will make you wonder if someone is either getting it on with a cat who has its tail stuck in a vice, or some bird is dying of a rotting disease.

Yours truely,

Yoko Ono (which is Japanese for Cold, frigid bitch)"

Dear Yoko,

Now you're jus' being ignorant. It's Beatles, not Beetles.

Thanks for sending me the song rights. And the delivery boy.

Sincerely,

Michael Jackson

Someone above you doesn't think so. ;)

I suppose it's better then having to write out individual thank yous.

Wow, I never knew that.

Sean said that he didn't even know John was a Beatle for the longest time. He thought it was extraordinarily weird that so many people were mourning outside his apartment building; although he knew who the Beatles were, he didn't know how much they meant to the world.
