What rhymes with orange

My friend says to me: "What rhymes with orange"
I said: "no it doesn't"


This is a joke about a miscommunication. The miscommunication in the joke was probably intentional, however there are two parsing of the initial question: "What [word] rhymes with orange[?]", and "[The word] what rhymes with orange[.]" Since spoken sentences do not provide punctuation, it is possible that the confusion could occur.

However, normal English speakers would almost certainly parse it in the first way, not the second.
