Words rhyming with Valentine….

WORDS RHYMING WITH ” VALENTINE”- I tried to test my vocabulary today by making an effort to recall some words which end in “-tine” and then see how they can be related to Valentine,which is the word for the day. I could recall words like Intestine,Serpentine,Turpentine,etc. Now let me see how I can relate these words with Valentine : 

This hullabaloo about commercialization of Valentine Day,is not digestible to my intestines! 

Lovers who want to celebrate,come what may,throng florists,cafes,cinema halls and pubs in long queues,which are so long that they can be called serpentine ! ( This day can also be a reminder about the episode about the serpant,Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden ! ) 

When you want to apply a thin coat of paint on a surface,you have to add a chemical called turpentine to the it.However,lovers today will wish to paint the town thickly red or pink,so turpentine sales business will be down! 
Huge sized hoardings have been put in malls,outside hotels, on major road crossings, announcing about 50 to 80% discount on sales of gifts,dinners,parties etc to attract lovers.The size of such hoardings is elephantine ! 

There are those segments of our society,who want to protect our country’s sacred maryaada and would love,if those who flaunt their hearts on their sleeves today,are jailed—or put at least in quarantine !  
I’ll end on that cheerful note….

If readers have thought of more words rhyming with Valentine,they may please try to conjure up some silly thoughts like those above,and add them to my list. Thanks. E..N..J..O..Y..!!

    I had a good laugh reading all those tines… Something different on valentines 🙂 Anyway, I could not think of any known word! So I created one – talentine, which means talents that blooms on valentines day. 🙂 Regards,

    Hilarious, Mr. Broca! I could not think of any more ‘tine’ words, but how about that selfish and egoistic word ‘mine’, which we use so often even when talking about our valentine? Best regards,

      Dear Gautamji,

      I thank you for your response. Yes “mine” is indeed a selfish word. However,I wanted to restrict myself to words ending with ‘tine’. If one extends this hilarity to other words ending with ‘ine’, there will be a long list… ‘asinine’, ‘quinine’, ‘jasmine’, ‘feline’,… etc. You can think of suitable punch lines with these words and enjoy another hearty laugh.

    Jitoo Sir,
    Nice read. Julie Madam has added more cream. I think now you can add another supplement. Main answer sheet is full now. You need to attach a supplement. Best wishes.

    Dear Brocaji,

    Julie has given a list of words to use. I found your opinion and your search for rhyming words for “Valentine” quite interesting. I too pulled out my dictionary and fumbled through the pages. I could not find any other word. Regards to you,

      Dear Linaji,

      I am thankful to you for your response. I had not used the dictionary. These words just popped out of my fertile mind while travelling home from office on 13th. I noted them down on the back of a visiting card in my pocket and then I expanded the idea later. Any way, I am happy if you liked my effort in creating hilarity.

    Jitoo, though it is a proper noun, Einstein rhymes with Valentine. Let your humorously active imagination come up with a good punch line for them.

      Dear Shernaz
      Einstein is known for his Theory of Relativity.Valentine’s Day,in a way, signifies Practise of Relativity ie two entities relate to each other through a common bond of a universal force called Love.Thats what connection I could see between the two.

    Dear JS Brocaji,

    It’s so tempting that I am contributing nine “-TINES” to the romantic kitty.

    PRISTINE: The soul mates motivated by pristine love wish to be born and reborn as lovers in the unending life cycle.

    SALTINE: The moony lovers don’t mind crunching a few saltines when they are hungry and wash it down with their labial juice.

    TONTINE: The sweethearts, both of them insurance advisors, make a thoughtful provision for their future: “Let’s adequately invest in tontines to insure each other.”

    CYSTINE: “Let’s unite and beget a fair token of our consummation like how two cysteines combine to form a white crystalline amino acid,” pledge in unison the lovers in their chemistry lab.

    XANTHINE: “I love every atom and particle in you, including the xanthine in your system,” so croons the possessed lover, a PhD in biochemistry.

    DENTINE: “Let’s passionately kiss each other until the dentine of our teeth is bared,” resolve the gritty twosome waltzing out of their dental college into the thick bush.

    EPSTEIN: “Our love is immortal, we would have none other than Epstein to sculpt our busts in union,” fancy the amorists from the fine arts college.

    NICOTINE: “Nicotine is nothing before our amours, we never like to be de-addicted,” agree the bacchanals passing by a tobacco de-addiction camp.

    SISTINE: Even puritanical Sistine devotees don’t like to escape being bitten by the love bug.
