Wisdom From the Beatles

There I was, looking at the name of the Beatles, wondering if there was any wisdom contained in the name itself. Sure enough, there was a pretty wise message there applicable to many of us, but not all of us, of course: "Eat less!"

Don't bother to point out how one "s" is missing because it doesn't matter at all. I might have even stretched my point by saying the way to "be" is to "eat less" while sharing with those in need, so there, I did that, too: B eat les.

I rest my case.
