There’s a meme going round some left wing blogs, quoting words from Imagine to mark the anniversary of the death of John Lennon. Here’s a quote from Lennon:

It’s only a fucking song.

I came across this somewhere recently. Lennon was, apparently, being visited in New York by a friend from Liverpool. Seeing Yoko Ono’s walk-in chiller for storing fur coats, the friend said, “Imagine no possessions, eh, John?”

John replied as above.

  • Hope you don’t mind, but I have linked to this from mine. I hadn’t heard this one, but it makes me hate Imagine even more.

    Thanks for the link, Richard. And thanks for one a week or two ago.
