Word Games from our younger days

1) Can one eat “My elder brother’s wife is feeling sleepy”?

My elder brother’s wife => sister-in-law => MAYEE
is feeling sleepy => yawn => THAN
Combine them => MAYEE + THAN
Transpose => MAYAN + THEE => MAYANTHEE (Marion, delicious Burmese fruit)

2) Do you recall the cryptic “PIN LE DHA MYA”?

PIN LE => is wide => KYAIR
DHA MYA => plunders (takes by force) => TAIK
Combine them => KYAIR + TAIK
Transpose => KYAIK + TAIR (Love, …)

3) Pho Thaike’s response to “If I give you a raise of 5 kyats to your present salary of 20 kyats, will you move to Na Shan?”

TWENTY
FIVE
TOE

PHO THAIKE
NO

NO GO
NA SHAN
TOWN.
