The Beatles express contempt for their female fans with the original photos from Robert Whitaker’s Yesterday and Today cover.

Dear Ones,
Yesterday to show my loyalty I bought a Beatle wig, 3 Beatles albums, a Beatle sweatshirt, and 4 Beatle dolls. I spent $24.79.
I adore you. Take my heart. It is all I have left.

My adorable, sweet John,
I have lost 30lbs. and you have been the inspiration for my diet.
I don’t eat. I just sit and look at your picture.
Fat Phylis is no more!
