My reputation is in tatters: I'm helping my mother with a village quiz
and, though I have Google and the Internet and she only books, I'm
stumped. The quiz is in the forms of triplets which are connected in
some way that allows them to be described by a single, singular noun.
For example 'Farfalle', 'Rigatoni' and 'Penne' gives 'pasta'.. But to
give you a better flavour, 'Encyclia', 'Pleione' and 'Stanhopea' gives
'orchid'. The one I'm stuck on is:
'max and mush'
'drabt is off'
'sir left weed'
Yes, 'drabt' - beats me. Seems it might be Danish word but the
glossaries don't recognise it as an acronym. Tried anagrams (surely
not). Still stuck.

I've got a bit more on the format. Whereas my example with the pasta
types would have been written all in lower case, other questions have
indicated proper nouns with initial capital letters. The problem is
Max and Mush
Drabt is off
Sir Left Weed
In other questions, if the first word is not a proper noun, it does
not have a capital; all this implying some of the above *are* proper
Thanks for the comments but I've not got any further (and in the first
case, it's a collection category we're looking for).
