Nothing rhymes with orange

A: Nothing rhymes with orange
B: No it doesn't

This joke is based on a miscommunication. Person A says "Nothing rhymes with orange", which is intended to mean "There is not a word in the English language that rhymes with orange", but Person B hears instead "The word 'nothing' rhymes with the word 'orange'".

As far as I know, both of them are right, however Person B is likely intentionally misunderstanding Person A, since the second meaning of the sentence is obviously false.


  1. Knock knock knock knock knock knock knock knock.
    Who’s there?
    A spider
    Explain this thank you.

    1. Sorry for the late response but the joke is basically since a spider has 8 legs it knocks 8 times with each leg instead of twice like humans who only have 2 arms. hope that helped

    2. the spider has eight legs. it knocks with all eight
