* Also Gideon wasn't a person (well, he was...in TheBible...), "Gideon's bible" refers to Gideons International, a bible distributing organization well known for donating bibles to be left in hotel rooms, meant to be left there to be used by the occupants.

** Okay, this idea sounded really bloody ridiculous to me until I went and listened to the song off Itunes on headphones so I could hear all of the background noise and bass and hear how creepy a lot of it is. Now it makes a lot of sense, at least the idea of The Banker being a sinister figure (there's a really creepy HellIsThatNoise effect when he arrives at the barber's at the end) and the Fireman rushing in to save the barber at the end (his LeitMotif is trumpets and a clanging bell that seems like perfect music for TheCavalry). Also note the Banker "waiting for a trim"...didn't one branch of the Mythos-maybe even TribeTwelve-connect Slendy to a German folktale about a sinister creature that wielded a giant pair of scissors with which he pursued naughty children?

* This is probably happening somewhere in Canada. The Fireman's "portrait of the queen" that he keeps in his pocket is on a Canadian $20 bill that he's planning to give to Slendy in case that works. The nurse selling poppies was selling them for Rememberance Day, which falls on 11/11 (sequences of the same number show up a lot in the SlenderManMythos, plus the dead of winter seems the best time for Slendy to strike). The references to her "thinking she was in a play" imply that she had a similar experience to the WebVideo/EverymanHybrid crew; she thought she was just in a play about Slendy but he turned out to be after her in real life.

* My sister (she's 14 and I'm 18) was playing Yellow Submarine on Rockband when she gave me this theory. "In the town where I was born" could represent Liverpool. "Lived a man who lived a sea" might represent Brian Epstein. "And he told us of his life, in the land of submarines" is representing being in the music business. "So we sailed into the sun" is the Beatles on tour "till we found the sea of green" could represent fame/mmoney. "And we lived beneath the waves, of our Yellow Submarine" is talking about living on the success of their fame.

Wizards typically live longer than Muggles (Dumbledore lived into his 100s and didn't die naturally). Paul and Ringo are both very much YoungerThanTheyLook and obviously, judging by their musical careers and the fact they both still go on tour, plan to live a while longer. But all four Beatles are/were on missions to destroy Horcruxes. They broke up when [[BigBad Heather Mills]] rose for the first time in 1968, for their own safety. George couldn't get anyone else to kill him before he was killed by a Horcrux, rather painfully, nastily and in a way reminiscent of cancer. John arranged for Mark David Chapman to kill him because he knew he would eventually die in a similar way. The Horcrux that almost killed John was Music/YokoOno. John meant to kill her shortly before his own death so he wouldn't get in any trouble, but MDC turned up too early. The Horcrux that took George was his BadassBeard, which was destroyed when he shaved it off. Unfortunately, the damage had been done and he died too. After George's death, Paul and Ringo realised just how dire their situation was, and Paul became a [[TheMole mole]] by marrying Heather Mills - that was, until she sussed him out and Paul had to divorce her to avoid getting killed. Paul and Ringo know there are two more Horcruxes they don't know of; specifically, one relating to Paul and one to Ringo. However, since the 'Paul' Horcrux was probably either Michael Jackson or [=Linda McCartney=], that only leaves the 'Ringo' Horcrux and Yoko. Paul, Ringo and Olivia Harrison (determined to avenge her husband's death) are all currently trying to get closer to Yoko ([[TearJerker who doesn't know she's a Horcrux, by the way]]) by doing things such as promoting RockBand alongside her. Incidentally, Olivia was the only Beatle wife (with the obvious exception of Heather Mills) who was also a witch, hence why Paul and Ringo let her in on their mission.

The opening is a depiction of George Harrison, a "holy roller" with "Hair down to his knees." He came "groovin' up slowly": he started out as "just" a guitarist, but eventually caught up with Lennon-McCartney's songwriting skills. For "joo-joo eyeball", there was the problem of fans throwing jelly babies (and jelly beans!) at him, and his fear of getting hit in the eye with one. He was fiercely independent, and in January, he had walked out on the group, so he's "a joker-he just do what he please."

The 'scrimp and save' part on the second verse: when he reached 64, PaulMcCartney probably didn't have to 'scrimp and save.' He ''wanted'' to, which probably annoyed [[GoldDigger Heather Mills]] no end. He was at his most openly extravagant when they were together.

* "Rocky Raccoon" was released in 1968. Reagan didn't become president until 1980 (he was sworn in as governor of California in 1967) and Hinckley didn't attempt to assassinate him until 1981.

The descriptions from earlier may be indecipherable delusion, but there's a distinct chance that the narrator's hypothetical "yourself" has a psychotic break near a park (one with [[NightmareFuel/RealLife the little bouncy animals on springs]] or (if the river was metaphorical or paint on the floor, but the cellophane flowers weren't) a big fancy toy store.

It seems to list multiple things that a person is ("[[AGodAmI I am god!]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis I AM GOD!]] I Am The Ruler Of All Things!), rather than multiple beings. The walrus ate the penguin that laid the egg that is humanity ("I am the eggman, they are the eggman")- an egg created in god's image but immeasureably less complex. Then the "egg-man" rises as a walrus to overthrow the penguin. ("I am human. I am human- yet I am greater than god!" A stealth Bigger Than Jesus.) Humans are now as the yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye- meaningless filth in comparison to the narrator's godhood. The elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna and pornographic priestess bits are saying, "Worship me! And if you're a hot female, worship me naked! You, god, are lower than me, so sing my praises!" The Joker is a reference to both a deck of cards, and how the most worthless card in the deck, a pitiful mortal, is now one of the greatest beings in existence, unfathomable to those who play, let alone the other cards- the Jokers from ''Literature/TheDarkSideOfTheSun''. The first line is about {{Instrumentality}}, and the second (see how they run, ''et al''.) is the other mortals refusing to join him in ascendance. The first verse (sitting on a cornflake/corporation t-shirts to See how they run/I'm cryin') is the narrator's interpretation of a protest as being a service held in his honor, then trying to fight off the puny mortal police and his delusion of "scaring them off". The last verse until the end of the song is fading into deeper and deeper disconnection from reality, why it seems to get so much creepier and mixed up with radio broadcasts at the end.
