Paul McCartney Attacked in Mexico
comcast ^ | 01 Jun 2010 | JT Ramsay

Posted on 06/01/2010 6:22:13 PM PDT by tlb

Paul McCartney was reportedly "shaken up" by an incident that happened after a concert in Mexico City. Police had to rescue the former Beatle after a mob swarmed his tour bus.

A source says that even McCartney's security detail thought it was just another ho-hum standard giant crowd enveloping his tour bus until things got out of hand as youths started scaling the bus. It escalated from there as they got on the roof of the bus and started jumping up and down.

The mob dispersed when police were dispatched to the scene. McCartney's management is said to be re-evaluating his security detail.

Apparently some people south of the border actually have had enough of silly little love songs.

About 15 years ago, I used to work with this cheesy guy who was our purchasing agent. He was a huge Paul McCartney fan.

I used to annoy him every once in a while by telling him that Chapman shot the wrong Beatle.

Tell obama that he needs to close the border or they will drag you out of your California digs and beat you Paul.

Or the song ‘One Down Three to Go’ by The Meatmen. Tesco Vee sure had a whacked sense of humor.

Paul should bring ono along. He finds himself in a jam again all he hsa to do is give her the mike and let her howl away. The mob would be disperse real quick! Kinda like the invisible fencing for dogs.

Had I a nickel for everytime I have hit the “Get the “H” out of here, and onto another station” button on my car radio to escape a McCartney, or Beatles song I’d be quite wealthy today.
