Thread Name: BS: Paul is dead...sort of
Subject: RE: BS: Paul is dead...sort of
My cousin in Detroit was a rabid Beatles fan. My sister and I went to visit in about 1966, and we played a "Paul is dead" hoax on her back then. With the help of my cousin's siblings, we called all her friends and convinced them to go along with the hoax. My poor cousin was frantic. I don't know who cooked up the idea. I plead innocence now, but I maybe have forgotten that I was the guilty party.
I wonder how common these "Paul is dead" hoaxes were.
