Two things came to mind while I watched that -
1) Thank goodness he is a vegetarian. Imagine him butchering meat like the veges!
2) Now I know why he and Heather Mills REALLY broke up!!

The piece was at least 9 minutes too long. It's mashed potatoes for goodness' sake.

It was funny not because he was trying tomake it funny, but rather because it was so pathetic.

Well, I just thought you all might get a kick out of it. It's Paul MacCartney, for goodness sake.
Oh well.

We're not saying we didn't like it - I think we're all wondering why he even did it. I'm seriously glad he has all his fingers after demonstrating how to cut that onion

This was NOTHING against you posting this - not at all!

Charlie - OH!! sad/funny

I was thinking he did it because his divorce is hitting him harder than he thought.

He made this shortly after his first wife died. He mentioned her a couple of times...I think he was missing her terribly. People handle their grief in different ways.

I definitely clenched my teeth when he cut the onion and the potatoes, geez I thought he would lose a finger! Cute though, thanks for posting it Constance. I have Linda McCartney's cookbook.

I wish I could make as much money doing something I couldn't do well as you say he did singing and playing guitar.

Making money is a difrent story. He could easily share his money with you, me and quite few more people and all of us would live pretty rich life if he did.
