10 Rhymes that might be true, or probably not.
I remember a famous court case that seemed to hinge on the rhyme 'If the glove don't fit, you must acquit' It wasn't true. In fact the logic there is so hilariously faulty that it's amazing that it got any traction at all. Yet we find that if there is a rhyme involved then something is probably true. It makes no sense at all, but people love a good rhyme. Witches always seem to need a rhyme to get a spell or incantation to work, but only if it's spoken in English. Latin spells don't seem to need to rhyme. I'm not sure why. Anyway, I decided to come up with some to prove the fact that rhymes are not indicator of truth or anything really except the ability to use words that sound similar.
There you go. Any truth in these rhymes is purely coincidental. Next time you hear someone using a rhyme in an effort to prove a point just remember 'If he uses a rhyme, he'll take more time' That one is probably true.
