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.

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.
