Water, in fact, proved a useful metaphor when McCartney's album 'Driving Rain' came out in 2001. Noted for its gushing love songs, the record celebrated long drives "straight to the eye of the hurricane," encouraged his new lover to 'Rinse the Raindrops' and imagined their world inside a 'Tiny Bubble.'
Seven years later, the couple's recent, highly publicized divorce proceedings featured an altogether different need for an umbrella. When Mills learned that the judge had decided in her ex-husband's favor, granting her $48 million -- considerably less than she'd been seeking -- Mills reportedly doused Fiona Shackleton, McCartney's lawyer, with a pitcher of water. Eyewitnesses claim Mills all but admitted the episode when she explained that Shackleton had been "baptized in court."
Now the incident has inspired an online game called Splash & Grab, in which players view the courtroom from the perspective of Ms. Mills, trying to douse McCartney and his lawyer as they pop up, Whack-a-Mole style. Each direct hit soaks Sir Paul for a bigger portion of his liquid assets. The catch: if you accidentally hit the judge, points are deducted.
And there's not a dry eye in the house.
