What on Earth Are Stinky Pinkies?

Nope! You're wrong if you guessed "smelly little fingers." This kind I mean consists of two rhyming words which are the answers to "daffynitions." When I was a kid, I remember sitting around the schoolyard at lunchtime (Louisville, KY) creating and sharing "Stinky Pinkies" with my friends. It was a great game, which adults can enjoy, too. So here are some I remember and some I made up as an adult. I've divided them up into three categories. This page concerns those which have only one syllable per word.
