The kiddos are young, maybe between 4 and 7 years when they are playing at home with momma cooking in the kitchen. They hear a key rattling in the front door—it’s 3pm! Papa’s home!
Momma: Quick, quick! Sope! Sope!* [Sope=Tuna’s terrible phonetic spelling of ‘hide’ in Cantonese]
The kids run into a closet to surprise Papa when he comes in. Papa comes into the house, huffy and furious.
Papa: Where’s the man?! WHERE ARE YOU HIDING HIM?
In Cantonese, the words for “hide” and “man” may be homonyms and sound similar.
