I’ve tried and I’ve tried and I’ve tried…

But it’s true. Nothing rhymes with “orange”.

      Oh come on. Would anyone ever rhyme “orange” with “sporange” in anything other than an academic paper? Anyway I’m starting to think you made it up.

      • Warren in New Zealand says:

        Orange has nearly no perfect rhymes but the only word that rhymes with orange is sporange, an extremely rare alternative form of sporangium. Silver is also another word for which it is nearly impossible to get an ideal rhyme and the only word is the rare word chilver.

        Frankly is right, :)

        Also, Eminem manages, in his own way :)

          I had no idea you were also a rapper, Warren. The things I’ve learned about you these last few years!

          That’s a fun piece. Thanks!

      I think there’s a button on my software that allows me to ban commenters who employ abusive puns, Linda. Don’t make me use it.

    You can rhyme things with it in French though!

    Mélange is so far the only thing my brain is coming up with right now. It is almost 1AM and I’ve been up since 6:30AM, so that might be a factor. . .

    Lozenge! It’s pretty close :)

      I like Eminem’s “door hinge” rhyme the best I think. That’s pretty much right on the money!

    It’s a proper noun, but “Blorenge” fits the bill. See

    I have a friend who once rhymed “orange” in a song with “door hinge”. I think he did it on a dare, but it mostly worked.

    Hey Joe what rhymes with it in Latin… aurantiaco… I think.
