Their Performance Was Indeed Second To None

For those of you unfamiliar with the Beatles, look up "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" on Wikipedia... there's quite an interesting story behind the song itself.

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [1843; a tent somewhere in England] (Blonde Englishman, holding a broom in front of a tent) "`ello, Squire. Who was that young lass?" (Top Hat gentleman) "She's a young lady from the States. Just congratulating me for putting on a splendid show." (BE) "Strewth. I never thought word of mouth would get that far." (THG) "She said a couple of local lads traveling abroad told her all about it. She especially liked the trampoline act and the waltzing horse." (BE) "Speaking of which, I've got to go finish cleaning his stable." (THG) "Right, well... If you happen to run into a Mr. Lennon or Mr. McCartney, be sure to convey to them my deepest gratitude!" (BE) "That I will, Mr. Kite!"
