Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles". Don't know why they decided to name themselves after a bunch of bugs but maybe Papa Roach knows... This is a classic Beatles number but has only been parodied twice so far on Amiright.com (Maybe we'll find out why) (Comments & Parodies)

Milk Suds
Another wordplay on "Milk Duds". Compared to water, milk can kind of make "suds" (somewhat resembling soap suds). I remember how school kids would sometimes produce that effect by blowing into a straw placed in a milk carton.
