Pretty much. What's so often forgotten when that quote is thrown around, is just what a cheeky sense of humour John Lennon had. How a joke that was so obviously designed to take the piss out of a mate, gets mistaken for being serious or malicious is completely beyond me. Talk about missing the blatantly obvious. Clearly these guys don't ever tease their friends.
