Apparently 6 Brazilians who tried to enter Great Britian where denied entry into that country because they where not able to answer trivia questions about the mopheads posted by customs and imigration inspectors at the airport.
The 6 claimed the had been on their way to a Beatles festival when they attempted to enter the country. Their failure to correctly answer the trivia questions apparently cast doubt on their intentions in England.
So if you want to go to England, make sure you are fully versed on the Fab Four and know that Yoko destroyed the band.

Just as well you were not with them L-188, if they'd have asked you to write down the name of the band they might have had an issue with your spelling!
Seriously though, at least Immigration had an officer fluent in their language, to avoid misunderstandings, but I doubt if just answering a few questions was the only factor, but anything else more mundane won't make for such a good story, this was pretty widely reported over here a few days ago.
