Keep a Word, Delete a Word
 
It's called Keep a Word - Delete a Word.

Example: I post the first two words.

Couch Potato

the next person quotes me and changes one of the words:

Potato Pancake

The next person quotes that and changes it:

Pancake Syrup

You always keep one of the two words - and you change the other one so that the two words still comprise a common phrase.

So I'll start.
