A soap impression of his wife which he ate,

And donated to the National Trust.

Notes.
1. John got the idea to this title from headline in a gun magazine, which read
"Happiness Is Warm Gun In Your Hand." The song itself was really three unfinished song
ideas put
together, and it was a complicated and long process to get it recorded.  It worked out
in the end though, after 70 takes, thanks to a joint team effort from all four members.

2. The title carries sexual connotations, of course, the kind that would typically amuse
John. The BBC even banned the song for this reason.  The lyrics have some odd
references to real people and places, "Mother Superior," for example, was one of John's
nicknames for Yoko Ono. http://www.thebeatlesonline.com/pages/beatles_happinessisawarmgun.htm
