This morning brings us another endless stream of people Twittering the chorus of “I Am the Walrus”. It is continually amazing to me how many people all over the world, in several languages, feel the need to tweet some permutation of the phrase “I am the Walrus”. Another thing that amuses me is how people are spelling whatever it is that the Beatles laid down as the final phrase in the chorus. My interpretation has always sort of been “Koo Koo Ka Joob”, but here are a list of five current versions of this lyric on the Twitter just now.
- Goo Goo G’Joob!
- Koo Koo Koochu
- Coo Coo Ca Choo
- Good good good job!
Of those, today there seems to be worldwide consensus on “Goo Goo G’Joob” which I haven’t seen much recently but is very common this morning. A week ago, around John’s birthday, it was different.
I’m not sure why this has captured my interest this morning, and sorry it’s not ‘really’ walrus related but there you are!
