1. "How do i become more like yoko ono?"

2. "What would you expect to come out of a Yoko Ono Pinata?"

3."What does it mean to be called a Yoko Ono?"

4. "What was the big deal about Yoko Ono and John Lennon being in bed together?"

5. "Did George Harrison really call Yoko Ono a b*tch becasue she ate one of his biscuits?"

6. "What are some examples of Yoko Ono's performance art BESIDES 'Cut Piece'?"

7. "Is there a haunted island off of New York where John Lennon and Yoko Ono once spent a night?"

8. "Please i really need the love story of john lennon and yoko ono for school!?"

9. "Queen Elizabeth wore a red hat and red coat when she met Yoko Ono today in Liverpool. Was that a good color...?"

10. "How long have you loved Yoko Ono and her sweet music?"

@aliceandstuff I am overjoyed that this is the first comment, as the song has been stuck in my head since I first saw the headline an hour ago. :)

@aliceandstuff But I won't be your Yoko Ono if you're not good enough for me.


Powerful. Thank you.@l


Aww, Question Writer #1: Wear a big, big hat, wave your arms a lot while talking about feelings as if they were colors (or whatever), and don't make eye-contact with the help, ever.

I have met Yoko Ono, and she is so strange.


@BadWolf I would be disappointed if I were to hear that she is mind-numbingly normal.


@HeyThatsMyBike Hah, no worries there.


How is Yoko Ono's babby formed?

Jane Marie

but really, what WOULD come out of the pinata?


@Jane Marie Butterflies and Bonito flakes.


@Jane Marie Plums, stardust, and a raven.


@Jane Marie miniature spectacles and umbrellas


@Jane Marie Cherry blossoms and all the world's sadness


@Dr. Iris Puffybush THAT'S where it came from. It seemed familiar, I just didn't think about it. Ha ha, thank you.


@Jane Marie Strawberries and gauze.

Summer Somewhere

oh man, so many kids getting the internet to do their homework for them.

To be fair, if you ate one of my biscuits, I might could call you a bitch.


@Reginal T. Squirge I am so loving picturing George using "might could" right now.


@Reginal T. Squirge Definitely. Hands off my biscuits, people.


Q. How many people did Yoko Ono hit in the face when she shot mini-flashlights out of a cannon at the 2007 Pitchfork Music Festival?

A. At least one.


@cuminafterall Was it you?!?!


@cuminafterall Were you okay?


@WhiskeySour Oh yes. It wasn't moving very fast by the time it hit me (boyfriend and I were toward the back of the audience), so it didn't even leave a mark. But it did freak me out and leave me in a pretty pissy mood!


@cuminafterall I'm glad you weren't hurt! I hate it when things are thrown/tossed/cannoned at concerts. When drummers toss out broken drumsticks, I'm always terrified that I'll end up having a front-row seat to a gruesome eyeball injury.


@cuminafterall Those were shot out of a cannon?! I was there, but somehow I didn't realize that's how they got out, since none hit me in the face. I still have one attached inside one of my purses.


Did Yoko Ono write her own jokes when she was on two episodes of Mad About You?


@elizabeast Why do I still remember Jamie making a joke about "yawning for peace?"


Beatrix Kiddo

Does Yoko Ono still have a Twitter account? Because she used to, and it was amazing.

Many moons ago I was walking with my college professor/advisor after class, and she kept mentioning that there was "something I'm forgetting..." I had been browsing dumb websites earlier that day (note: this was before The Hairpin changed our collective lives), including one that had listed that day's celebrity birthdays. One birthday happened to be Yoko Ono's, and in a deeply lame attempt humor I said "Well, it's Yoko Ono's birthday today! Hahah."

She stopped dead in her tracks, grabbed my shoulders, looked me right in the eyes, and said: "Thank you. I forgot to send flowers."

True story, ladies and other ladies (and gentlemen!).

Jane Marie

@D. Lurker OH MY


We need more of these posts. About Yoko Ono or anything else, really.


@whateverlolawants Seconded! I loved this.
