Pretty sure John was engaged in gallows humor here -- he was a true animal lover for his whole life. He did like to pull people's leg and engage in complex thought, often playing one or two steps ahead of his audience. He toyed with reporters who never knew if he was telling the truth or shining them on. His "bigger than Jesus" line was one of those.
I'm not so sure - I know the times were different but his "John Lennon In His Own Write" has some unpleasantly blatant racism and slights against disabled people. Not that it really matters.
