But, even when they hated Paul they still wouldn't acknowledge anything about what they did other than Beatle Bill (wink wink). Why wouldn't they talk about it if it was only a joke? "So Sgt. Pepper took you by surprise" "While you and Sgt. Pepper saw the writing on the wall".
You ever heard the myth of the Pope and the silver hammer? What was the Pope's name back then? The Band was on the Run, but from what? What was being avenged?

The film tells the story of Orton and Halliwell in flashback, framed by sequences of Lahr researching the book upon which the film is based with Orton's literary agent, Peggy Ramsay. Orton and Halliwell's relationship is traced from its beginnings at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. Orton starts out as the uneducated youth to Halliwell's older faux-sophisticate. As the relationship progresses, however, Orton grows increasingly confident in his talent while Halliwell's writing stagnates. They fall into a parody of a traditional married couple, with Orton as the "husband" and Halliwell as the long-suffering and increasingly ignored "wife" (a situation exacerbated by Orton's unwillingness, in 1960s England, to acknowledge having a male lover). Orton is commissioned to write a screenplay for The Beatles and Halliwell gets carried away in preparing for a meeting with the "Fab Four", but in the end Orton is taken away for a meeting on his own. Finally, a despondent Halliwell kills Orton with half a dozen blows to the head from a hammer and commits suicide.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Maxwell%27s_Silver_Hammer#Dead_Pope.2C_Part_2 In the wake of the death of Pope John Paul II on 2 April 2005, news outlets and other sources have issued a variety of contradictory statements about the use of a silver hammer in connection with a pope's death: it's an old, discontinued practice, or it remains a current practice; the use of the hammer once served a functional purpose, or its use is (and always has been) purely symbolic. In light of these competing claims, we await a pronouncement from an identifiable (i.e., non-anonymous) Vatican official on the subject before declaring this one either 'True' or 'False.'
