“He Blew His Mind Out In A Car? No, Paul. No, He Didn’t.”

Daily Show scribe Tim Carvell dreams up a hilarious memo from the NFL to Paul McCartney…

We’ve reviewed your set list and dance routine, and we have just a few notes:

  • “Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da”: Is there something you can say after “life goes on” that’s not “bra”? The word still makes us a little nervous around here. Thanks.
  • “Blackbird”: “Take these broken wings and learn to fly”? It’s a lovely image, Paul, but: Children are going to be watching this. No parent wants to have to explain injured birds to their children, especially not on Super Sunday. Can you sing around it so the bird’s wings aren’t broken? Maybe the bird could take its “bucket o’ wings” and learn to fly? KFC may pay for the product placement. Just a thought.
  • “I Saw Her Standing There”: “Well, she was just 17, you know what I mean”? I am fairly certain that I do not know what you mean, but I do know that she’d better be at least 18. Make that 21. Or 25. She was just 25. That works fine.
