FOUR WORDS FOR YOU

The English language: What four words have no other words that will rhyme with them?

It's such a simple word it doesn't seem possible, but "pint" doesn't have any perfect rhymes either.

Regarding orange, and depending on whether you think the first syllable of 'orange' is pronounced 'or' or 'are':

Four eng
ineers
wore orange
brassieres

or

eating an orange
while making love
makes for bizarre enj
oyment thereof

Oh Kimmie you old cynic....
From 'getting started with sheep' -
Here is a basic glossary:

Ewe: a mature female, usually a stock breeder
Ram: a mature, physically intact male, usually a stock breeder
Lamb: any young sheep, especially those destined for early slaughter
Wether, or mutton wether: a castrated young adult male being reared for meat
Chilver: a young ewe that has not yet had a lamb
Hogget: a yearling sheep of either sex (also 'ewe hog' and 'ram hog')



Some extreemly useful info if you wrer thinking of taking up sheep farming ROFL
