BRITAIN’S leading Beatles tribute band has split up after an encounter with Japan’s foremost Yoko Ono impersonator.
The popular mock Scousers were attending a lookalike convention in London when they bumped into top Yoko mimic, Marika Shirasuka.
Bootleg John Lennon said: “I was instantly taken with her, but I could tell the rest of the lads weren’t so keen. Bootleg Paul kept saying, ‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this’.”
He added: “Anyway, we were having a drink and she said, ‘Listen, why don’t you fuck off those three other dicks, and come and do music and shagging with me instead?’.
“I suddenly thought, ‘Yeah, actually, I’m sick of spending my life copying John Lennon – I’m going to do something different for once, and shack up with an enigmatic Japanese woman.'”
Bootleg Paul McCartney said: “It’s a shame, but I’ve got tons of exciting new projects in the pipeline.
“I’m going to form and then dismantle the Bootleg Wings, do something with the Bootleg Frogs and then in 30 years’ time, I’ll collaborate with the Bootleg Kanye West.”
