“Yoko Ono is delightful and every time somebody over 35 or 40 makes a joke about how Yoko stinks, or Yoko’s bad at singing, or Yoko’s crazy, or Yoko broke up the Beatles… Every time that happens, a child is born and that child will help to overthrow the baby boomer hubris-fueled patriarchal institution that perpetuates jokes that aren’t funny and that just come from false premises SUCH AS ‘Yoko Ono broke up the Beatles’, SUCH AS ‘The Doors were good’, SUCH AS ‘Eric Clapton seemed like a good guy you’d just want to hang out with and hear his tunes and his stories.’ And that’s all FIDDLE FADDLE!”
