Earrings for Paul McCartney’s ears

Earrings for Paul McCartney’s earsIf you were listening to the radio while in New York October of 1969, you might have heard someone named “Tom” call in claiming that the real Paul McCartney was dead. As proof of Paul’s death,  “Tom” cited hidden clues on the cover of the Beatle’s “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album.  Initially, this claim animated a lot of souls but eventually was considered a hoax.  That is, until  2009 when two Italians, Francesco Gavazzeni and Gabriella Carlesi , forensics experts, conducted a biometrical analysis of “Paul fotos” before and after his reported death. They concluded that there were enough discrepancies in the facial features  to indicate that there were indeed two different Pauls.
The main discrepancy was that of the ears. The earlobes of the “Before” Paul were different that then earlobes of the “After“ Paul.  Had they pierced their tragus, these Paul Is Dead theories might have disappeared.
Earrings have been around for at least 5,000 years.  They are even mentioned in the Bible.  In some ancient cultures, earrings were worn as amulets to keep evil spirits from entering the body.
Siddhartha use to wear earrings, too. That is until he became Buddha.  As a young prince, he wore earrings as an indication of his position and of his wealth.  But when he became a monk, he took off his jewellery.  However, by this time the weight of the earrings had stretched out his lobes.  That’s why, as Buddha, he’s depicted with elongated ears.
As for myself, I never feel completely dressed unless I’m wearing earrings and adorned like a Christmas tree.
