Ask Grumpus: Beatles vs. Snoopy
In the 1960s, John Lennon blasphemed that The Beatles were "bigger than Jesus". Comparing a rock band with our redeemer is sin of the worst sort, but are the Beatles bigger than Snoopy?

I am thanking you for the words ending in ? that you ask me. Grumpus can be answering your question, yes. Quite.
Google Trends is making graph below of search volumes. I type in "Beatles" and "Snoopy" and Google makes it so. Graph telling Grumpus that indeed, Beatles being bigger than Snoopy -- every day. However, Grumpus doing sublevel analysis and seeing that there is ONE place in world where Snoopy being bigger than Beatles. That'm place being Guatemala. Grumpus would be reminding Moe that in 1980s, Amnesty International calling Guatemala "...peerless cesspool of human rights abuse". That being gooding reason forced people liking Snoopy more than Beatles.
Also, Moe -- Grumpus pointing out that biggest of beagle height being 1' 4", and average height of Beatle being 5' 11" (not counting star of Ringo). Thus, Beatles being bigger than Snoopy.
Moe -- by same Grumpus process of logicating, Beatles also likely bigger than Jesus, as in his'm time men being average on 5' 1".
So...Snoopy bigger than Beatles? That'm ridickling.
