Another Rutles reference in The Economist

If you read the print edition of The Economist, you know that they try to have fun when they caption photos. The photo caption on page 86 of yesterday’s issue is “Legend in his own lunchtime,” Another clear Rutles reference.

The Rutles’ influence on culture

How many times have you seen newspaper articles titles after Beatles songs?  “Wall Street’s Long and Winding Road,” “Octopus’ Garden,” or “”Back Off Boogaloo” Says Reagan to Brezhnev” (OK, I made up that last one.)  Check out today’s issue of The Economist.  The cover story is “All You Need is Cash,” an obvious Rutles reference.  That’s one more reason to love The Economist.
