Word of the Day 01/16/17 Crambo

Oops. Sorry this is really late. I thought I had Monday's word all set to post over the weekend, but I guess I just had until Sunday.

Crambo (noun)
crambo [kram-boh]

noun, plural cramboes.
1. a game in which one person or side must find a rhyme to a word or a line of verse given by another.
2. inferior rhyme.

Origin: 1600-10; earlier crambe < Latin crambē repetīta phrase used by Juvenal in reference to unimaginative writing, literally, repeated (i.e., re-served) cabbage (< Greek krambē kind of cabbage)

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
