I thought that was an interesting brief article. The Beatles would not be doing that to their manager Brian Epstein if they did not feel a closeness to him to begin with to be that way. They must have felt comfortable around him to be throwing even "bread rolls" at their manager, whatever the reason--probably in fun as the Beatles always liked to clown around. Much of their laughter to express themselves left when they lost him. A great traumatic loss as they were no longer the same. Thank you Eppylover for sharing this article.
Heh, I know Bri appreciated their pranks as boyish efforts to pull him down from his high horse, trying to get him to lighten up.
Brian's own "pranks" tended to be more on the subtle side: such as when he took surprise snapshots of people at parties just as they gaped their mouths wide open to take a huge bite out of a piece of food!
I sure wish I could find more concrete examples of his sense of humor. However, they just aren't published anywhere because editors, etc. don't seem to think people would be interested.
It's always all about those damn Beatles. Never mind the many good, happy stories that could be told about the glorious man who made them the unbelievable worldwide phenomenon they have been for almost half a century now.
For every low and sad, there was a high and happy ~ but we never hear the other half from anyone. It sucks.
