Here's the game: List two descriptive words as clues. The answers to the clues have to rhyme. Try to have some fun with it (puns are always welcome). To keep the game moving at a decent pace we'll wait for confirmation from the OP of the correct answer or for the first answer to be voted for 3 times.

Example: Smelly Finger
Answer: Stinky Pinky

Starting off easy with the first clue: Clever animal, cube

It would be fox box.

Keyboard instrument, measurement

Both seem equally valid. How do we sort out that type of situation?

As for your clue, John, the only thing I can think of is 'chrome metronome'?

keytar, meter

Here's an idea on the rule for deciding the winner:

- OP of the current puzzle says so
- 3 posters agree on an answer

This should allow the game to continue at a decent pace.

Yes, fox box is what I had in mind. Been trying to figure the other one out all day... still can't come up with anything better than what's already been posted (thought of keytar-meter as well but they don't rhyme). I'm partial to the piano-nano answer.

I'll update the original post with more specifics!

I can't accept "piano nano" because nano is an order of magnitude rather than a measumement.

"Harpsichord cord" works however (it's not what I was thinking of).

SmoothBlade's turn, unless people want to figure out what mine actually was.

I'm not a native speaker, so obviously my pronunciation might be off, but does keytar - meter rhyme for the rest of you people? Doesn't for me.
Keytar Bar does, for me, even if it's a bit lame.

i second the motion in regards to keytar not rhyming with meter

I'll third that. We should try to refrain from using half rhymes, with the possible exception of a really funny pun that's arguably worth bending the rules for. ;)

I can't think of anything else, but I'd still like to know the answer, at the very least... :P

Furlong
Firkin
Parsecs
Fortnights
football field...
nano-second
bequerel
dioptre

^list of unusual measuremants, none of which rhyme with "hurdy-gurdy"

Although, I did learn that 1.8 terafurlongs per fortnight = the speed of light

I'm sure thats useful

Yeah, I was discounting Phrozt's suggestion because they didn't rhyme.

Oh, and the instrument is in the wikipedia list.

I just want the instrument to be the hurdy-gurdy, but no measurements rhyme with it. I thought maybe "thirty" but that wouldn't count.

perhaps a mellotron metric-tonne? (some alliteration there as well, bonues points?)

I would say that thirty rhymes with hurdy-gurdy, but if that's not what it is then the point is moot. :P

Thirty isn't a measurement.

Okay then, mine was melodica kilometre.

I can't think of any that could work for this one.

Is it just me or is kilometre and melodica a bad rhyme?

Toblerone Trombone?
Whatchamacallit Trumpet? (eh, not very good)

And you said keytar meter was a bad rhyme?? At least they both actually end in the same letter...

How the hell do "a" and "er" sounds rhyme??

Some people will prounounce kilometre with a -meta ending. Still not a very good rhyme to a -ca ending in my book.
