John Lennon quiz

How well do you know the great man?

We adore John Lennon. Sang his songs as a wee nipper, now sing his songs to our wee nipper. However, contrary to popular opinion, Lennon wasn’t always right. This, after all, is the man who once proudly declared himself to be a walrus. He wasn’t. We blame the cough mixture. He also said nothing is real. What rot. This quiz dedicated to the sarcastic genius of John Winston Lennon is most definitely real. (Main image: Rex)
