The man in the background in the original, who Mr. Minestrone represents, was named Paul Cole, who died in 2008. He says about the Abbey Road cover:"I just happened to look up, and I saw those guys walking across the street like a line of ducks," Cole remembered. "A bunch of kooks, I called them, because they were rather radical-looking at that time. You didn't walk around in London barefoot."It's all a coincidence, that the ducks and "Buncha Stooges" resembles Cole's thoughts so precisely.
