The lamest rhyme I ever wrote
Was one involving Don Quixote.
No, wait, a lamer one than that,
The famous movie Chocolat.
But maybe even lamer still,
The butchering of "centre-ville".
And finally, to fill this hole,
The food we know as ____________.

What word ends this horrible rhyming stanza?

  • $\begingroup$ @JoeZ. massively late to the party, but "still" does rhyme with "centre-ville" ? $\endgroup$ – Quentin Jun 9 '15 at 19:03
  • $\begingroup$ "centre-ville" isn't a word in English. If you pronounce it in the English way, yes it rhymes with "still", but nobody actually pronounces it that way. $\endgroup$ – Joe Z. Jun 9 '15 at 19:47

The word is

guacamole

Reasoning:

The pairs of words all look like they rhyme since they end in pretty much the same letters, but they don't actually rhyme.

"wrote" doesn't rhyme with "Quixote", which is pronounced in the Spanish way.

"that" doesn't rhyme with the French pronunciation of "chocolat"

"still" doesn't rhyme with the French pronunciation of "centre-ville"

"hole" doesn't rhyme with "guacamole", which is pronounced in the Spanish way.

They're all lame rhymes since none of them actually rhyme!

  • $\begingroup$ Perfect! Everything is correct. $\endgroup$ – Joe Z. Apr 10 '15 at 22:23
  • $\begingroup$ Also a note: Quixote and guacamole are both Spanish words. $\endgroup$ – Joe Z. Apr 10 '15 at 22:23
