Only four words in the English language end in โ€œdous.โ€

But in American English they end in "dos?"

What are they?

Human teeth are the only part of the body that canโ€™t heal themselves.

**bleep** True.

Yes!

That's certainly not true.

 

True or not True?

Certainly, that's not true. If you sever your spine, you will be paralyzed forever. It will never heal.

Thank you for suggesting a good topic for us.

Here is my personal story:

- I woke up late on Sunday and went to the bathroom. However, I realized that I had forgotten the color of my toothbrush.

Ha!

No word in the English language rhymes with "orange"

Now, that is interesting!

There are actually two words that rhyme with the word orange: sporange, which is apparently a technical word for a spore sac, and Blorenge, a mountain in Wales.

Good to know this!

But don't worry, eventually someone will attempt to develop a pronunciation of a standard word that will attempt to rhyme with it. Like pronouncing "range" in a similar fashion. 

"Did you see my new orange range rover?

But the drug makers will invent one!
