Chinese BeatlesTian says: Regarding the “Bizarre anti-Beatles pamphlet located”, I have found an old “Meet the Beatles” album cover in Chinese.

1. Notice all the band member’s eyes? They have been changed to make them look more ‘Asianized’ (and in John Lennon’s case, more stoned).

2. The phonetic translation of the band name “beatles”, actually means “disheveled hair” in Chinese.” (Reposted)
