Can Tai tie his shoes?

My wife just left to pick up our grandson Tai from day care.  I was wondering about greeting him on his return with “Can Tai tie his shoes?”

Then my mind went into a whirlwind of word combinations.

Tai can tie his shoes, but Tai first has to shoo us away.

Tai can shoe a horse but not if he shoos it.

Tai can’t shoe a fly, but he can shoo a fly.  If he can’t shoe a fly, then he can’t tie a shooed fly’s shoe.

Drat, I thought I had more silly combinations, but it was a tie remembering them before other parts of my brain shooed them away.
