To continue the game after solving a definition, create your own defintion using the same rules. Here is the first definition:

I guess that answers the question of why I didn't get it and nobody else did, either.

Fancy and pants don't rhyme, boneyfriend.

No wonder I was enjoying this game so much. I wasn't playing by the rules. Sorry. And I was so proud of myself. My entry Hercules/language gesture doesn't rhyme either. I was thinking of Atlas Shrugged. Next time I will pay more attention.

Are you sure the target words rhyme, Articulate Dreamer? I have been racking my brains and still cannot come up with a workable answer. Apparently, no one else can either. A hint, please?

I can only come up with "many pennies" but that doesn't rhyme exactly, so somebody else can try a different guess.

You got mine right.

For yours, I can only come up with "poked revoked"; however, I realize that one syllable compared to two syllables wouldn't technically rhyme.

Islanddreamer, yours is something like an oblique/semi rhyme, which is still a rhyme in my book.

Mine was a "perfect rhyme," according to rhyme rules. There is no specific term for an entire word (multi-syllabic) rhyming with the entirety of another word.

The most commonly accepted form of rhyme is where the last stressed syllable and everything after it (to the right) sound the same, this is considered a perfect rhyme. Anything that extends further to the left is considered more than perfect.

angry (3) young man (3) = mad lad

I have no problem with "many penny"; it's "pennies" with the "s" sound on the end that throws it off, to my way of thinking anyway.

Perhaps it's time for an official ruling from capo as to what can pass for rhyming in this game. This is a good example for clarification, as well as whether or not the number of syllables must be the same.

What do you think, capo? It's your game.
