“Which Kebab do you want?"/"Kalmi maybe.”

"Kalmi” kebab sounds a little like “call me.” There have been puns with the Carly Rae Jepsen song “Call Me Maybe.”

“Half-cooked kebab - kalmi maybe” was posted on Twitter on September 2, 2012. “What kind of Kabab is this..?” “Kalmi maybe” was posted on Twitter on September 10, 2012. “Which Kabab do you want?  Kalmi maybe” was posted on Twitter on March 26, 2014.

Kalmi
Kalmi kebab a popular snack in Indian cuisine. The dish is made by marinating chicken drumsticks and placing them in a tandoor. Various kinds of freshly ground Indian spices are added to the yogurt used for the marination of the chicken. When prepared, the drumsticks are usually garnished with mint leaves and served with onions and Indian bread.

Wikipedia: Call Me Maybe
“Call Me Maybe” is a song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for her EP Curiosity (2012) which also appears on her international debut studio album, Kiss (2012). The song was written by Jepsen and Tavish Crowe as a folk song, but its genre was modified to pop following the production by Josh Ramsay. It was released as the lead single from the EP on September 20, 2011, through 604 Records. Jepsen was signed to Schoolboy Records, releasing her single in the United States through the label, as the first single from Kiss. Musically, “Call Me Maybe” is a pop and teen pop track that alludes to the inconvenience that a love at first sight brings to a girl who hopes for a call back from a new crush.
