See also Orange (disambiguation) for other meanings of the word.
Oft-cursed word of poets, having no rhyming partner in English until the advent of quorange (though door-hinge is a close approximation). "Grorange" (a color of slime made by mixing orange and green slime) did appear in one novelization of the Super Mario Brothers Nintendo games. Since "orange" refers to a species of plant, anyone could hypothetically coin a new rhyme by creating a new hybrid with an orange and another species of citrus fruit and naming it (for example, a hybrid of a kumquat and an orange could be called a "korange"). "Rhymes with Orange", in reference to this famous unrhymeability, has been used as the name of a comic strip.
