Rhymes with Silver and Orange

I'm looking for a poem that uses a play on words to find rhymes for both silver and orange, I believe within the same poem. For example, I think the use of "door-hinge" is used to rhyme with orange. I can find a bunch of poems out there that play with "unrhymable" language in this way, but I thought there was a shorter, catchy one that took on silver and orange in one verse. Maybe five lines or so, maybe a limerick? Sound familiar?

Have oranges, want dessert. Help!

I have too many tangerines, and I'm hoping to convert them into a tasty dessert for my dinner party tonight. I've got most other dessert basics (flour, sugar, eggs, butter, etc) on hand, but I'm doing a grocery run anyway. What will wow my guests?

Help me find sexy, fashionable underwear as a xmas gift for my bf!

My boyfriend is a clotheshorse and is a big fan of sexy undies in particular. I have no fashion sense whatsoever, but I would like to spend $25 or less on saucy & fashionable underwear as part of a Christmas gift to him. His favorite colors are Pantone 138, Apricot, and Pantone 1665, Carrot. He is fond of zany patterns & designs that might traditionally be considered "loud." Halp!

Orange segment recipes.

I like making candied orange peels. This leaves me with 1-2 oranges worth of orange segments, but 95% of orange recipes are about zest or juice, or require way too many oranges (eg. marmalade, and previous similar questions). Do you have any recipes that only uses the flesh of an orange, and which is cooked or baked?

Name That Fat Cat

So we just adopted this big girl from the Humane Society 2 days ago. We don't know anything about her past. She was abandoned there a week ago. She's HUGE. Big-boned, long, and FAT. She has 26 toes and weighs 25 pounds. She is thought to be about 4 years old.She sees our vet on Friday, and we expect she will be put on a reducing plan, but she will always be quite large. She's quick to purr, loves scritches on the butt, between the ears, and under the chin. We thought we had come up with the perfect name: Butter Buddha (or Buddha Belly), but have since gotten several excellent ideas--Refrigerator Purry, and Mrs. Butterworth. We are reconsidering her name. But we don't want to be too hasty in case another more perfect name is out there. Ideas?
