( Yes, that symbol: * .) Rhymes may be phrases or single words, or fairly loose rhymes.

OH! Whisk, being a single syllable word, doesn't rhyme with asterisk (sorry!), but you got two of my personal favorites: basilisk and obelisk. Great job!!
Keep those rhymes coming, folks. Think phrases, too (but keep it rated G, please)...
Actually the word rhyme refers only to the vowel sound in the word - the number of syllables doesn't really matter. To make whisk fit with asterisk you could just add more words e.g. master-whisk or plaster-whisk or something along those lines.
Dan, in looking into this further, I think we're both wrong: see http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/rhyme, especially the concise encyclopedia section where they talk about "true rhymes". I was thinking only of trisyllabic rhymes (wrong!).
Ooooh! You're the master of phrases so far! Good job! I laughed at "Quik of Bisc" :-) Where would I be without Bisquick pancakes? (25 pounds lighter, at least LOL). Thanks for taking up the challenge--you play a good game!
That totally counts! Good one!
Hm. Well, first off, "asterisk" has three syllables, and your words all have only one, so I'm afraid they don't rhyme. Also, the ends of your words highlight the common mis-pronunciation of the word as "ick", whereas it ends in "isk". Sorry, Goody5!
I respect this, however in different regions of the country the word is pronounced differently, and where I come from it's ending is pronounced with "ICK". There's also no rule stating that two words need to have the same amount of syllables to rhyme
See my comment to Dan Barfield: you're right about last syllables matching. Per Merriam-Webster, however, "isk" is the most correct, formal pronunciation the end of this word, like its spelling (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/asterisk...
These are great! Thanks, nehanatu86!
ROTFL! I'm having a hard time thinking of the last time I read something this excellently creative! Kudos! This is fabulous!
