What rhymes with orange?

I´ve been thinking…..first  just the word sounds ugly as well as the colour. I have never seen a house painted orange. Well I just went to google and saw this images. Where in the world is this house at? Probably near the North Pole would be my guess. As far away from civilization as possible, for the simple fact that one people will be blinded every time they saw it and second, it´s just ugly as hell as well as health issues for human being.

And what rhymes with orange, can you create a poem around the word orange….

I ate an orange
that was in my storage
that I grabbed from the hills of blorenge
in Whales, which in the plants was the sporange

Actually only two words Blorenge and Sporange actually rhyme with orange. And sporange doesn´t even appear in the Merrian Webster dictionary and that his the holy grail of dictionaries, had to look that word up in the urbandictionary.com.

Just seems to me like a boring word, and who in the world invented that word that´s what I would like to know, did he or she, probably a she, just to make life even more complicated (just kidding). Anyways, it´s boring, sounds ugly, and Merrian Webster doesn´t have it. Just thinking…..we can petition those nutcases, the ones who are in charge of making dictionaries, who are those people by the way. Do they updated words every year? And if that is the case what does that mean that people invent new words? So you can actually invent words. Going back, we should petition to take that word out of the dictionary and burn that house in the process. It´s already giving my the hivy jivies just looking at it. Just ban that colour, how many people do you see walking down the street wearing an orange jacket and trousers, I haven´t seen any. So why have that colour in the first place?

I invented a word by the way and is not even in the urbandictionary, and it is my pride and glory that word which is “screwby”, makes sense you saying screw you while saying good by or dismissing something or someone and all roll into one. Why don´t they contact me and put that word in Merrian Webster, who are those people who decide what words are worthy and what are not. What are they the King of words, no there is only one king and that is King Kong. So screwby them.

Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.

  1. your word sounds cool – and I think to get added to the dictionary it has to be used a certain amount of time and by the populous (like conversate was used and incorporated) and I do not know the history of orange – but enjoyed this post about it – cool house – oh and orange is also a noun and an adjective – so that is one more point in its favor –

      1. hey CP – had to drop by cos DP just had a little post about word origins and it made me think of this post –

        Today’s selection — from Why Do We Say It? by Castle Books. A few word origins:

        “Corn. Why does the word ‘corn’ mean so many different grains?
        Because ‘corn’ originally meant any small particle — even sand or salt. That is why beef preserved by the use of salt is called ‘corned beef.’ When ‘com’ finally came to mean a certain type of grain it was used to refer to the grain that was the leading crop of the locality. In England, therefore, ‘corn’ is wheat; in Scotland and Ireland, ‘corn’ is oats; and in the United States, it’s maize.

        “Gargoyle. Does the word ‘gargoyle’ refer to the appearance of these images?
        No. ‘Gargoyle’ is an Old French word and literally means ‘throat.’ Gargoyles were originally used as projections from the gutter of a building to carry the rainwater clear of the walls, and they spurted this drain water through their ‘throats.’

        “Kid. What is the reason we call a child a ‘kid’?
        The Anglo-Saxon word for ‘child’ is cild. In ancient times — just as today — folks often failed to pronounce the letter ‘l.’ The similarity of sound between this name for a child and that for a young goat, and the similarity of antics, led to the use of ‘kid’ as a synonym for ‘child.’

        “Necking. From what did the word ‘necking’ get its current meaning?
        From the neck’s being an added object of the affection and the theoretical lower limit of action. The word ‘neck’ itself has its origin in the Dutch nekken, meaning ‘to kill.’ Our neck acquired its name from the fact that you pull or twist the neck of a chicken to kill it. But there’s no implied allusion to this origin in the current meaning of ‘necking.’

        “Salary. Where did we get the word ‘salary”?
        From the ancient Romans. The word literally means ‘salt money.’ The Roman soldier was once given an allowance of salt; then he was given an allowance of money for the purchase of salt. This was called a salarium — from sal, meaning ‘salt.’

        “Umpire. Where does the word ‘umpire’ come from?
        From the Old French word nompair, meaning ‘not paired.’ The ‘umpire’ is the third or ‘not paired’ person called upon to decide between two contestants.”

      2. Hello, sorry for the delay response. Have to say……I have no words, you baffle me
        Where did we get that word by the way, “baffle”, sounds good to my ear
