I was having a laugh because there had been so much gobbledygook about Pepper — play it backwards and you stand on your head and all of that. [Regarding the line "Here's another clue for you all, the Walrus was Paul"] Well, that was a joke, that was a bit of a song, you know. I mean, it was actually me in the Walrus suit. I thought I'd confuse people who read great depths into lyrics. It could have been "The fox terrier was Paul," you know. It's just a bit of poetry. It was just thrown in like that. The line was put in partly because I was feeling guilty because I was with Yoko, and I was leaving Paul. It's, you know, a perverse way of saying to Paul, you know, "Here, have a crumb, this illusion, this stroke, because I'm leaving.

—John Lennon, 1980
