Oh, I see it's too specific. So, let me explain, but as I said, it's bawdy

So, the first pic is are of course Van Gogh's sunflowers, and the socond one are horse's whales.
By accident, 'horse's whales' in Polish is written and sounds the same as, let's face it, beating around the bush. End of joke

Out of seven

Timon in all of them:

Timon
Timona (Timon's)
Timonowi (to Timon ie. say sth)
Timona (ie. let me introduce Timon)
Timonem (with Timon)
Timona (at Timon's ie. house)
Timonie (Timon, come here! - in modern Polish 'Timon' would sound more natural than that)

"Walenie konia" is written and sounds the same as "beating around the bush"?

Mateusz said ten. Well there will be some remnants, like in Dutch.

In Dutch:

PLH (in general)
PLH's (it belongs to PLH)

I can't think of any more forms. Dutch grammar isn't my favourite subject and I tend to forget things, so maybe Chris knows some more.

Not too difficult, I'd say
