[edit] Ringo?

Somebody sounding suspiciously like Ringo Starr says "I can't believe he said that" at the end of the press conference. This could be in reference to the infamous John Lennon quote stating that The Beatles were "more popular than Jesus" and the uproar that ensued.

Arguments for:

  • Re arg against: it does sound a LOT like Ringo Starr, and it doesn't take a lot to make any sort of Beatles connection from there.
  • Re: Re: Re: arg against: I don't think that you could name any other Liverpudlians that are as well-known as the Beatles... or that even come close. Sorry, but your argument's just way too shallow.

Arguments against:

  • This is a voice that might sound like Ringo Starr and might be a vague reference to a situation where someone might have said such a line. It is not a direct quote or reference.
  • Re Re arg against: What? Because the accent has the same characteristics as hundreds of thousands of people from the same area as Ringo? And why is it so easy to make a Beatles connection here? Because it's about the British? I just don't see it. It's too TTATOTey for me.

Additional comments:

  • Does anyone else feel this should be reworded a bit? If it's accepted then it should just say it's a reference, not it COULD be a reference.
    • Overruled! Many pages' Fun Facts state that things could be a reference to something else. In many cases, it would be impossible to know if it is/isn't a reference unless you're TBC, which you aren't. You can't just assume that something's a reference, because when you assume, you make a... well, you know.
