    Last time I checked, there weren't any words that rhyme with purple or orange, unless someone dreamt them up.

    I think "orange" and "doorhinge" rhyme, so do "purple" and "nurple"

    there are also other words that have no rhyme (under the true definition, not counting part rhymes)

    month
    ninth
    pint
    opus
    dangerous
    marathon
    wolf
    discombobulate
    silver

    i think these are all right, i read it somewhere a while ago, though there may be others, im not sure
