While trying to write some silly poetry, I found this good resource for finding all things "rhymes". Glad I found a counterpart to my French Dictionnaire de Rimes.
I love words sites.

PS : I have yet to find anything that rhymes with four-letter words on that site...

Good site.. I've always used this one, which is so ridiculously useful that it makes this old sailor blush just to think on it.

But rhymer gives results when you search for rymes of orange, rhymezone does not.

The ultimate test: double rhymes for "purple."

They both rhyme. Although WriteExpress does offer ending rhymes for purple, whereas Lycos' attempt does not.

But Lycos' RhymeZone does offer not only rhymes but also antonyms, synonyms, homonyms, familiar sounding words, definitions, quotations, and more. I think it's safe to say both links offered have their own plusses. I'll probably use them both jointly from now on whenever I need something.

Although Dictionary.com and Thesaurus.com are still my first links of choice when it comes to word stuff. I'm lazy. I like just typing them in to the address field, and they're integrated. You can use one and have immediate access to the other. They don't help with rhyming though.

Ack! Correction above: They both rhyme should have said, They both FAIL. So much for the spell checker.

Clinton? His Daughter? Who cares anymore....

"oughtta" might work, but you can't convince me that "anymore" rhymes with "daughter" ...
