Rhyme Time

My parents loved challenging each other with "Hinky Pinkies." Hink Pinks, Hinky Pinkies and Hinkity Pinkities are two words that rhyme, a clue is given so the player has to guess what the answer is. Don't look at me, I didn't name them that.

For instance, I could give the clue "The hour that words sound alike." The answer would be this post's title, Rhyme Time.

Another example would be "A place to sleep, colored crimson." The answer -- Red Bed.

Here are 10 more:

1. An obese feline.
2. A 4wd General Purpose vehicle that has sunk pretty far down.
3. A young female rodent.
4. A huge jolt of electricity.
5. The ability to cook outside.
6. The person who stole the tome.
7. The speedier parson
8. A tortoise with a lot of kids
9. A whimsical story about a horse barn
10. A lady of ill repute with no money. (1 syllable words)

Bonus: A lady of ill repute with no money (3 syllable words)

OK, Jr. Intergalactic Gladiators (and by Jr. Intergalactic Gladiators, I mean you), can you guess what the answers are to these? There actually may be more than one answer, let's see if you can guess them.

Super Double Bonus: Can you think of any hinky pinkies?

Hey, I grew up playing the same game with my family, except we called it Higgy Piggy (higgity piggity, hig pig, etc.) :D The difference is that our clues had to generally just be one word for each word. For example, for the hig pig "chair hair", we could say seat follicle.
