    Kindly explain how 'cup of tea' is in any way a pun relating to the Beatles.

    Thanks in advance.

    Beatles top the UK charts again with Abbey Road 50 years after its original release.

    Everyone has an opinion on the beatles but you have to give them that at least that decade where they first came on the scene and were introduced to this part of the world. The teenage girls especially were in lust for them, don't know if it was the music as much as the looks. I didn't think they looked like much. In my opinion Evlis the "king of rock'n roll" at the time was better looking than all four of the beatles.

    I don't understand 'woodentop', an English EU term?

    I did watch the video...looks like trying to get across the street in Montreal, Canada.

    I don’t understand “English EU”, is that like American English.

    Wooden tops. Kids program from the ‘60s synonymous with odd walking style and goofiness. Google it for more.
