    I bet the demographic for clicks on that was heavily skewed to baby boomers . . . it got me for a few seconds, but it was a very good idea for April Fools!

    Well it might have gotten me actually - all day. If fact I did not even realize i was being pranked because I was not motivated enough to click on it! LOL So I did not add to the click count at all. OTOH, there are some videos of McCarteny playing mandolin some place i think?

    I got it right away. Everyone knows lefties can't play mandolin...

    I remember seeing the real Sir Paul playing mandolin in a video ! Pretty good too !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    I totally missed the April Fool's joke, but coincidentally, I notice Paul strumming a mandolin sans pick in one of his shows in a video I watched last night. It was a clip shown around 31:11 during this David Frost interview:

    Keep your eye on the loading image. It'll eventually play. Don't give up! Silly part of it is I spent about two hours actually trying to animate the entire dam thing as one big image and finally gave up, went for a walk and thought... background image, overlay animated icon and some CSS. Came back, done in 5 minutes.

    Funny how April 1st is the only day many people DON'T take everything they find on the internet as the absolute truth!

    Excellent!!! I bought it, hook, line and sinker.
    My wife has always needled me about the time I spend reading the cafe. So yesterday I bragged to her about Sir Paul on the cafe!!! I was so eager to tell her that McCartney was on the cafe!!!
    Lol
    This is hysterical.

    He is actually right handed but plays for some reason as a lefty.

    This writer begs to differ with you:

    https://www.beatlesagain.com/breflib/lefthand.html
    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."

    I've got a picture of me writing right handed but I defiantly write and play left handed, I then realised the negative was upside down which reversed the image.

    I guess I didn’t care enough to open it until today simply because I blew my back out and can’t do much!
