One of the players leaves the room while the others select some word
with two or three meanings, which is to be guessed. Suppose the word
"trunk" is thought of. When the player is summoned in he asks each one
in turn "How do you like it?" The answers may be "full of clothes,"
"when the outside is brown," (meaning a tree trunk), "shut up in a
cage," (referring to an elephant's trunk).

The next time around the question is "When do you like it?" and the
answers may be, "When I'm going away," "When I'm in the country,"
"When I visit the Zoo."

The last question is "Where do you like it?" and the answers may be
"In my room," "In the woods," "On the animal it belongs to." The
questioner must try to guess the word from the various answers. If he
succeeds, the person whose answer revealed the word must leave the
room, but if he fails, he has to guess again.
