This is a hard word challenge game from our newspape

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
The trivia editor from our local newspaper wanted double-rhyming word pairs. Had to be 2 syllables, with each of the syllables rhyming with each other and each of the syllables being a word. His example was "suitcase" and "bootlace." Has to be one compound word.
I can rhyme anything but I admit that it took me all afternoon to get a pair. I finally came up with:


No rules against homophones.

How about you? Like I said, this was really hard for me.

Cargo and Fargo?

Do place names work?

Well, I came up with groundhog and hound dog, and then realized that didn't count.

Place names would work, though I think the rules were that each syllable had to be a different word.
Really hard.

This is a LOT harder than it sounds. Either that or my brain isn't functioning very well today.

I typed out a whole slew of qualifying words but I can't come up with any matches!

Actually, the only other pair that came to my mind is cupcake and uptake.

Now I can't focus on anything else AND I'm at work at the moment. Thanks a lot butzie.

You are so very welcome RobertM. Those are a great pair of words. Besides, isn't the game better than work?
