Since when was S****horpe in Yorkshire?

I think that part of Lincolnshire is now South Humberside or something equally silly, but never Yorkshire.

And auto editing a town's name is ridiculous!

Hi All,

'Lozenge' rhymes with 'orange'.

Strangely enough I've never seen it used. Maybe I've discovered the holy grail of poetry? Poets have for centuries had to avoid the word orange 'cos they knew they didn't have a hope of rhyming it with anything. Just imagine how frustrated Shakespeare must have been when he had to change 'her lips were orange like the orange' to some twaddle about 'ruby' and 'rose'. Poor sod.

Well, anyway, it's solved now, and I await a phone call from the Nobel Prize people with anticipation.

There was a young lady called 'Orange'
whose **** was shaped like a lozenge....

Obviously Tricks you have a different definition of what constitues a rhyme....
