Rhyme time

A few years ago, I bought a rhyming dictionary. It was shrink-wrapped. Imagine my disappointment when I got home and opened it to discover that it was nothing more than a bunch of lists of words which rhyme with each other. I had quite reasonably expected it to be an ordinary dictionary where all the definitions were written in rhyme. You get the idea:

floater (n) sl.

A poo
In the loo
Whose buoyancy
Causes annoyancy

It seems to me there's a huge gap in the market for a proper rhyming dictionary.

(Twenty bonus points for the best rhyming definition in the comments.)

Postscript: I see from the comments that the gap in the market has already been filled.

  1. Yellow Snow

    A snow cone

    Best left alone

    A magnet toflies

    Can damage your eyes

    I like to think of you as the Terry Wogan on the Internet.

  2. How about Pi:

    I find Pi the most fiendish parameter

    It transcends all attempts by this amateur

    To allay his severe

    And irrational fear

    Of circumference over diameter
