OUR COOK DOESN'T LIKE PEAS.

Source: Games for Everybody






All the players except one sit in a row. This one sits in front of
them and says to each one in turn: "Our cook doesn't like P's; what
can you give her instead?"

The first one may answer "sugar" and that will suit her, but the next
one might say "Potatoes," and that will not do, and he will have to
pay a forfeit because the letter "P" comes in that word.

There is a catch to this as everyone thinks that the vegetable "Peas"
is meant instead of the letter. Even after everybody has discovered
the trick it will be difficult to think of words, and if a player
fails to answer before 5 is counted, a forfeit must be paid. "My
grandma doesn't like tea (T)" is played in the same way.
