Who are these people who don't know how to pronounce words (and who don't know about basic dessert products)?

It's unfathomable to me that so many people could be ignorant of the basic knowledge of Magic Shell.

It's been awhile since English Lit in High School and I'm sure someone with more of a clue than I have will be right along to correct what I'm about to say, because ...internet... But it seems to be something between an End Rhyme and a Near Rhyme, and definitely not a perfect rhyme.

Or, in less words, Kinda-sorta

Well here in England they definitely rhyme - identical sounds after the initial c- or h-.

Well this thread is the first time I have ever seen the phrase "Magic Shell". Without Larry Levy's comment I would have guessed it was a petrol (aka "gas" in foreign parts) advertising slogan from the 1970's.

Don't most y'all drop the h sound so catch rhymes with 'atch?

The Brits may know this as Ice Magic. It's the chocolate sauce that (because of relatively high coconut oil content) hardens when it gets cold, such as when poured on ice cream.

Edit: It seems Bird's Ice Magic is no longer available in the UK.

I'm surprised so many people say they rhyme, as I rarely hear anything other than "ketch". I've lived in Wisconsin and Kansas, so maybe it's a regional thing.

Never really thought much about those two words. From what I hear, here, is they do not rhyme.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

When studying acting, at some point you have to study "Standard American Pronunciation" to avoid speaking in a giveaway regional dialect that you likely don't even know you have. In SAP, I'm quite sure Hatch and Catch are perfect rhymes.

Other fun notes from SAP:

The H in What, Where, When, and Why is not silent.

Merry, Marry, and Mary are not pronounced the same.

Stupid rhymes with Cupid

I say "stoo-pid" and "cue-pid". Do you say "styu-pid" or "coo-pid" to make them rhyme?

One would say 'stoopid' if they wanted to sound 'stewpid'.

Another fun one from the world of SAP:

Horror is pronounced 'hah-rawr' rather than 'whore-er.'

Which is not to say one might not be a whorer, but my what a horror that would be!
