Silly, stupid or just downright weird cartoon thread.

It's the 'enge' sound at the end that matters:
- Orange is pronounced 'awr-inj'
- Lozenge is pronounced 'loz-inj'

It's the 'inj' sound at the end that's the rhyme.

'Through' and 'Flew' are spelled differently but have the same '-oo' sound.

So there....ha!
Indeed ! Welcome to the whacky world of homos....no, not Jarrod's neighbourhood but homophones, homographs and homonyms. Just some of the quirky little things that make our language ( not yours, septics and other colonial cousins, sad immitators that you are ;) ) so BRILLIANT !!!!.

Can use them to wind folk up or even put the wind up them
 
The top two are homophones as well - different meaning, same sound.
My old English teacher claimed that only two true homonyms exist in the language - gorse and furze (I found a third name many years ago, but forgot).

Life sometimes imitates art! Our body cameras are designed to automatically come on if anyone nearby activates a TASER (that's draws it and 'red dots' not necessarily firing) so that any deployment is covered. The bogs in my las nick were next to the locker room where the TASERs were stored and the official guidance said to turn cameras fully off in the Bengahzi in case someone was ding the diagnostic checks on the taser at the start of the shift and 'compromised anyone's dignity and privacy'.
