This isn't rhyme, this is scansion. Two words rhyme if the final syllables sound the same, e.g. plate, date, late, mate, irate, prostrate, circumnavigate. You're right that "busted" and "nonsense" scan the same, but they certainly don't rhyme. :p: The question is whether "orange" rhymes with anything - so, whether anything else has that unstressed -ange sound at the end. And I don't think it does.
well clarified and justified. thanks

Surely you aren't doubting the great Stephen Fry and tthe QI elves are you!!

:eek4:
The guys at QI often talk nonsense. Eg. the episode where it was claimed that the Earth had more than one moon, which isn't technically right.
