I always thought that, like "orange," "purple" had no words with which it rhymed; however, Wikipedia lists these three: "curple, the hindquarters of a horse or donkey, hirple, to walk with a limp; and nurple, the act of roughly twisting a nipple." Hmm. I suppose it's true -- you do learn something every day.
