LONDON, U.K.--English rock legend Paul McCartney was apparently surprised yesterday, when he was given a question which he totally hasn't heard before. The singer-songwriter claimed that not once in his 50 years of public life has he been forced to answer that question, and certainly not a million different times in a million different ways.
"Nobody's ever asked me that before," said the stone-faced McCartney. "Seriously. Decades of doing interviews, you think you've heard it all, and then, boom! this, out of the blue. First original question I've heard in a quarter-century. Bravo for your courageous depth, sir."
McCartney, speaking to reports at the re-release premiere of the psychedelic film Magical Mystery Tour, expressed gratitude at not being forced to listen to the same tired questions he gets from reporters every time he leaves his freaking house.
"Normally people ask me the same, like, 10 questions," claimed the 70-year old. "'Why did the Beatles break up?', 'What would John be doing if he were still alive?', 'Are you and Ringo still friends?', 'Why is The White Album so long?' It's such a relief when people don't ask something that a Google search would clarify in two seconds, which clearly you would not be able to do in this instance. Because I've never been asked that before."
At press, reporters were still waiting to learn if "Let It Be" was about the Virgin Mary.
