The Beatles icon Paul McCartney told “Weird Al” Yankovic to ‘eat it’ when asked if he could spoof his song. Yankovic told Off Camera with Sam Jones that McCartney didn’t want “Live and Let Die” to become “Chicken Pot Pie” since he’s a vegetarian.
“They didn’t want to be associated with anything that was condoning the consumption of animal flesh.” Yankovic is also a vegetarian, and McCartney wasn’t against being spoof, he just didn’t want chickens in pies, and had another suggestion.
“So what got back to me was, he’d be OK if it was ‘Tofu Pot Pie’ or like ‘Veggie Pot Pie’ or whatever,” Yankovic said.
