This is how it works (i’ll show you examples):

3 B M, S H T R = 3 blind mice, see how they run
88 K on a P = 88 keys on a piano

I don’t know about this one. 10 frames of bowling is a game. I’ve never heard it called a line. But, I can’t think of anything better, to be honest. Could be “10 fish in a liter of bagels,” for all I know.

Well, where I grew up (Oklahoma/Texas), it wasn’t uncommon for someone to say, “Hey, want to go down to Western Lanes and bowl a few lines?” Maybe it’s a regionalism?

YMMV, of course, but I stand by my answer.
