Well, okay. Not exactly forced. John was funny with a good sense of humor. So....let me revise my comment/observation a bit. John's funny bits sometimes came about in a manner to try and deflate Paul's work. IMO I believe John knew he didn't come to the sessions with much in the way of good songs...or new songs period. His contribution was slight. Paul did have some good songs, he was brimming with musical idea. John was a bit jealous...again IMO....and came across that way in the comments, however humorous, that he made.
Yoko once said she felt John wished he had a tad bit of Paul's personality, and Paul had a tad bit of John's. I think so too.
