Paul the other one: Macca vs Mills puns

Guest post by Matt Ball, MSN UK editor-in-chief

With the McCartney-Mills divorce hearing in full swing newspaper headline writers should be having a field day with their puns, what with all those Beatles tracks to choose from.

But some of them have passed on the opportunity, with The Independent producing a particularly riveting and snappy headline: “Mills represents herself in showdown with McCartney over divorce settlement.”

So for pun lovers everywhere we are left with only the following:

Get Back – Daily Mirror

Mr Justice Bennett tries to work it out – Guardian

A Hard Day’s Fight – The Sun (front page)

With Legal Help From My Friends – The Sun (inside)

She Hates You, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah – Metro (front page)

We Can’t Work It Out As Macca Faces Mills – Metro (inside)

The best headline – on the front page of The Times – accompanies a shot of Macca looking grumpy and captures the mood perfectly: “Yesterday…”

So can you do better?

Here are some of our ideas to get you started:

I Feel Fined

Got To Get You Out Of My Life

Should you need inspiration take a look at the Beatles’ full discography via this Live Search link.

If one of you comes up with a real cracker we’ll consider using it on the site later this week (we can’t offer you payment for your brilliance but we will give you a bit of glory on this blog).

    Not exactly on topic, but regarding the new live features on the main page – the new map feature is useful, discovered it this morning, and as a regular user of Live Search, in particular maps/local, it\’s handly to have (I also use the client on my mobile too).  On my desktop, it\’s fine, but on my laptop, with a smaller screen, any pop ups on the map appear under whatever flash advert is on the main page at the time.  Eg. search for \’pizza\’ in \’portishead\’ – click a result, hover over the red push pin, and the useful info is hidden away.  Just thought I\’d let you know.  Great feature though otherwise.
