Added DiffLines:

* His infamous MS Paint art. Especially "A Elaphant Foot." (He's a lot better at photoshop.)


* The now-infamous video where he put the kibosh on fanmail contains the phrase, "I'm warning you [[MoodWhiplash with peace and love]]," quite possibly stated in ''deadly earnestness'' ([[DeadpanSnarker although, with Ringo, it's kinda hard to tell]]). Some obscure band even made it [[http://www.plyrics.com/lyrics/nonemoreblack/imwarningyouwithpeacelove.html the title of one of their songs.]]

Added DiffLines:

* When the 2017 eclipse happened in North America, Paul [=McCartney=] posted a picture of himself looking at it, and Yoko Ono did the same, if in a more artistic bent. What did Ringo do? He photoshopped himself ''into'' the eclipse.


* Ringo once took one of those Facebook-style online tests. The subject: Which [[Music/TheBeatles Beatle]] are you? [[spoiler:He got [[Music/JohnLennon John]].]]
-->'''Ringo''': Well this is bullshit!

* Any interview with him at all. Music/TheBeatles were all famous for DeadpanSnarker comebacks in interviews (there's a whole scene devoted to them in ''AHardDaysNight''), but Ringo was good at them even for a Beatle.

Added DiffLines:

* When he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2015, Ringo gave young bands this valuable advice:
-->''"When you're in a van, and you fart, own up. It'll cause hell if you don't own up because everyone will blame everyone else. Make a pact that you'll own up to it. We did and that's why we did so well."''
