Silly Word Game


Seeing the title of John Ling's "Zero Sum" (which is making it into 'Dark City 2', I hear, congrats!) made me think of Sum Tin Har, the matronly and buxom HK actress. Now, inexplicably, Sum Tin Har, being dishy in her unique way, associated my twisted mind with 'har lock', a kind of Chinese prawn dish. And, of course, 'har lock' made me think of the saying "lock, stock and barrel".

You get my drift.

Now, let's play a word game using only well-known maxims and titles of books, songs, TV series and movies.

I begin with Garrison Keillor's "Lake Wobegon Days". Days something, anyone?

Argus, I came earlier and commented but the comment didn't appear! Anyway, to carry on from Top Gun, Smoking Gun.

gRaCe said...

me turn, me turn..."Gun Shy" - movie. ;o)

p/s: no problem, Argus..it's fun! =D

JY said...

Lydia, thanks for playing too, but "Top Gun" calls for a new title beginning with 'Gun', not ending with it. ^_^

Lydia Teh said...

Oh I see. Okay-lah, after Gun Shy, Shy Guy. (Got such a name-ha? Remember the song which goes, shy guy, shy guy...)

Aiyo, I think it's easier to play this in Chinese. I've seen it in Chinese game shows and also remember this ditty from younger days : wo you ee zhe pi, she mo pi, mau pi, she mo mau, chi mau, she mor chi...

Tunku Halim said...

JY said...

Lydia, you're first in with 'Shy Guy' - yes, it's a song.
Like Grace, I was giggling at your comments.
Tunku Halim, you're a tad late (quicker draw, gunslinger!). Try the next round, please.

Now, people, "Guy..." what?
(I can only think of Guy Ritchie, and that is not acceptable.) ^_^

gRaCe said...
