    Hink Pink

    I recall a word game from long ago called ‘hink pink’. The object of the game was to pose a question where the two-word answer would have a certain number of syllables that rhyme.
    one syllable = hink pink
    two syllables = hinky pinky
    three syllables = hinkety pinkety

    For example:

    Poster #1 posts “what is a hink pink for a large swine”.
    Poster #2 posts “that would be a BIG PIG! What is a hinkety pinkety for the White House?”
    Poster #3 posts “The President’s residence! What is a hink pink for a comprehensive plan created by simply cutting and pasting one community’s name over another?”
    Poster #4 posts “A Stan plan! What’s a hinky pinky for an anti-aircraft gun that shoots down helicopters….”

    And so on.

    I’ll start…..what’s a hink pink for a malodorous armored vehicle?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I thought this thread might be about Comrade Hink.

    Actually, I was thinking 'rank tank' but stank tank works too. Some of the fun is of course to come up with 'bad' answers
    A hinkety pinkety for a scaredy cat? That's a tough one....how about "powerfully cowardly"?

    What's a hink pink for an odd-tasting lager?

    D'oh!! I meant Hinky Pinky. My first time at this game and apparently I'm not that good at it. I was thinking "wussy pussy".



    "Stale ale" for odd-tasting lager.


    How about a hink pink for an alcoholic's bed?

    what's a hinker pinker for a cyburbia moderator?

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I know it will make Hink's spleen burst with thread-hatred, but the answer is: Yoda Soda.

    I can't get the others that haven't been answered yet, but I am not giving up.
