Though I find most of the Eye Rhymes fairly easy, they are still lots of fun to do.

Have to agree with doehead! Where are you from, Smudge? Rest assured that in the USA these two words do NOT rhyme! As a teacher of English to foreign students, I am very interested to know how you're pronouncing them; do you know enough phonetics to explain that to me? I'll check back later for a response!!

Posted by MarcM109801/18/11
flood rhymes with bud, stood rhymes with could.

Extremely easy. I like easy, but this was way too easy. Sorry if I offend. I don't mean to. As it says "Your Comment" and that is what i try to do. :roll:

Fun and easy. And very good work finding words that eye rhyme, and working them into sentences :)

A nice one for the younger Braingle crowd.

Good one, it wasn't too hard, yet I wouldn't describe it as simple. To earlier comment: worry rhymes with flurry and sorry rhymes with safari. :)

Not too hard, but still made me think. I had fun with this teaser - it's very clever

Posted by Snowdog10/25/17
Teaser itself was a bit uninteresting due to the simplicity, but probably good for kids. Much more interesting was the discussion of which words rhyme or don't rhyme in the comments section. I would have loved to hear how people pronounce worry and sorry as rhyming, by listing other words with which they rhyme.

This brain teaswr was AWESOME. :D :D I LUVED IT!!!!!!!

Posted by steadyon10/25/17
In New Zealand we pronounce "worry" and "sorry" exactly the same as "lorry" (or lollie, if you replace the 'll' sound with a 'rr' sound). We say "soh-ree" and "woh-ree", whereas I think in the USA you say "saw-ree" and "waa-ree"?

Posted by tripleteam510/25/17
doesn't seem, a 2.89 diff. it was 30 seconder. But, unlike many puzzle clearly set out and constructed.. :wink: 8)

Posted by gaylewolf10/25/17
Yes, this was rather easy, but I loved it! I'm glad to see more comments in 2017. Thanks for posting! :lol:
