We're promised a blizzard tomorrow that will immobilize us all. Could we do a short word game?
See if we could carry this up to 10?

I can do the first one: 1ting

(I could do the second but the third is trouble already)

Reminds me of Bilbo Baggins's "eleventy first" birthday.

Eleventy one base twelve would be 133 base ten.

No one for 3? O.K. I found at least this 4tuna :

What they really sing:
O Fortuna
velut luna
statu variabilis,
semper crescis
aut decrescis;
vita detestabilis
nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem
dissolvit ut glaciem. But Buffalo sings this real text I remember.

Fortuna- Fate - monstrous and empty, you whirling wheel, you are malevolent, well-being is vain, and always fades to nothing, shadowed and veiled ; you plague me too; now through the game I bring my bare back to your villainy.
(pretty gloomy)

There are quite many to think of with the 4, but 3, I can't think of any.
