    Question [OT] Does anything rhyme with 'orange'?

    OK, this is horribly off topic. While cruising this forum, the eldest menhir gremlin asked, "is there any word in the English language that rhymes with the word 'orange'?"

    It's nice to see that there are others here with our sense of humor.

    Its easy to find rhymes for orange if one thinks musically. The word boring can rhyme with orange if you say it with the right accents as part of a song.

    I was a-walkin' through da mall,
    an' I saw a perfect orange.
    I a-tried to make a song,
    but this song is pretty borin'.

    In this case it rhymes because the middle part of the words "oran/orin" sounds the same.

    Not so difficult. Its only "perfect" rhymes that are a problem, because there are so few in the English language for 'orange', all of which are hard to fit into any sensible rhyme. But most rhymes, ie. the ones used in music and folk culture, are not about perfect rhymes.

    A very tenous connection, but this is one my favourite humorous small rhymes:
    Celia Celia
    When I am sad and weary
    When I think all hope has gone
    When I walk along High Holborn
    I think of you with nothing on
