Associate the letter with the alaphabet with something single. When it gets to the the end, just start over.

Keep the hat on Tinmantu! You really did your research. Kay, you are so uplifting, I think you are having too much fun. Berain, any other special letters? Careful, don't get us into trouble! Bunnyman, too funny. Joules, so positive. Cube, it's always a jolt, and you want to say why thank you for pointing it out.

Let's keep going and have some fun!

By the way, I answered "B".
