Thanks for nothing, Beatles*

Curling will probably always make me think of this scene in "Help." It's the one where the Beatles are supposedly curling (is that the right phrase?) and George inadvertently sends a booby-trapped curling stone their way. After he realizes it he says,
"It's a fiend-ish thingy!"
Followed by the Beatles running off while the stone explodes. Apparently, while filming a take for this scene a few of the Beatles ran about a mile. I think it had to do with something they smoked or something...

And that is why I cannot watch curling without giggling.

*I harbor no ill-will towards the Beatles, none at all.

I haven't seen that show for a long time. I forgot about that scene. In fact, I don't remember much about the film except that it was strange and random and I liked it better than "Hard Days Night."

Same here. It makes curling so much cooler.
