Used to describe the situation when the shit hits the fan and the first person to show up is used as a scapegoat for the problems. Based on the situation- the beatles breaking up. Yoko Ono was blamed by many fans of being the cause. The truth is that she just happened to be there at the time.
guy: Rolls-Royce has gone to shit since the Germans took it over

talking donkey: Their sales were already lower than Bentley. They have become passe. They would still be in the shit if they were still British-owned. You just have a slight case of yoko syndrome.
