Thanks, Q.

I appreciate that example. It sounds like,let me guess?, eenie meenie,
minie, mo {the one with the tiger and not the other one...}.

I can imagine some non-Spanish speaking children in the USA hearing the third line of that rhyme for instance and working their foll etymology magic so that the lines are transformed to something like

"Kay, Jen golly. Let's tango!"

Well, as the hip-hoppers say "It's all good."
