Today, while at work, a Beatles song came on the radio. I jokingly said, "These guys are pretty good, are they new?" Everyone thought I was being serious, and now they're convinced I'm an idiot. FML

I wouldn't know what the Beatles sound like at all

Show it anyway

It doesn't make him an idiot, it makes him a victim of society!

but when it's the beatles...

Not knowing who the beatles are is quite a crime.

Eh not knowing who the beetles are? Who cares. I wouldn't be over dramatic about it.

Maybe it's not just not knowing who they are but thinking their new when their songs are played almost everywhere?

Because we live in a society where we can't accept the reality that people have different tastes in music and ours aren't the only one that is actually good.

What's so good about the Beatles? Sorry officer, but I just don't think they're that good. Abbey Road is decent, but not much else by them is. Maybe Hey Bulldog, or Get Back. Also, Lennon was a wife beater. Consider that.

55 has a very good point.

The are beatles are not just a band. They're not just legends.the beatles are a way of life, they're a religion.

They were a boy band. If they existed today they'd get just as much abuse as One Direction.

71 is correct. If you've ever seen their live show videos, and when they first came to the U.S, their welcoming was even bigger than the boy bands today. And that's what they were back then: A boy band. Teenage girls went crazy over them.

Not knowing The Beatles makes you an idiot.

Because the Beatles are awesome!

I personally don't give a shit but i understand that everyone else does.

I don't believe that OP's colleagues are branding OP as an idiot simply because OP doesn't know of the band, but of their historical significance that goes along with said band.

I see what you did there...

Yeah, there were only the 275 songs they wrote, the 169 individual ones that were covered, and the fact that 'Hey Jude' sold over eight million copies as a single going for them, eh? Not much to them to be honest(!)

I see what u have to deal with OP

Your coworkers suck, sounds like it'll be a boring job OP

Same thing happens to me because as a joke whenever any Rock comes on the radio regardless of the artist I say "Man, I love AC/DC!"

Deaf not sea!! Done in by autocorrect and I failed to notice until after the edit window had closed! Agh, smart phones my ass!!

I seriously thought it was a new expression or something...

I scrolled down to find his comment, just to see what the phrase meant

That is very fascinating 36

Maybe they just take their job too seriously for jokes and that's why they looked at you like you were stupid?

My apologies OP. I would have probably thought that about you too.

Tell them you not only know them, you're their Starr, and that they should form a Ringo'round you as you sing and dance.

Don't worry op. You just need a shoulder to lennon.

I'm a-Pauled that they didn't sense OP's sarcasm

the sad part is that in some other work environment people probably would believe you instead of laughing.

A work environment like OP's?

did you say it with a serious tone or in a joking manner?

uhh, what do you think, asscricket??

no need to be mean there

put on a shirt, asscricket

14 I think that was very creative of you

14: I'm thinking of a few choice words for you, but I learned "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all". Try it sometime.

Oh the irony- idiots calling someone an idiot over an idiotic reason. That's like a hooker calling a promiscuous person a slut.
