A couple of hosts on a radio show were playing this game I am about to describe. I thought it was funny, and managed to make up about 15 before I ran out of ideas.

What you do, is take two word, usually an adjective and a noun, and replace them both with two words that rhyme, and mean more or less the same thing.

Here are three examples.

humorous rabbit can become funny bunny

nude bunny can become bare hare

angry father can become mad dad.

How many more can others think up?

Could be a fun game, but I think one person should say the two words, and the next should make a rhyming response, then say another two words.

"Madelaine McMasters"...

It's been decades since I heard the joke and all I remember is the punchline. It goes like this:

"A slap happy Jappy with a crap happy pappy."

I wouldn't have thought of if it Chic hadn't reminded me.

Heh ... a game killer right at the start.  Try rhyming "Madeline MacMasters" with anything.  It's like "orange rhinoceros."  🤔

Sigh...either I didn't understand the game as BilliJo described it, or the rest of y'all don't.

My understanding:

1.  Two words.  Words that don't rhyme.

2.  Two words, that rhyme WITH EACH OTHER, and are the same thing as the original two words.

3.  Example (also see BilliJo's examples in the OP):  Humorous Rabbit ----------> Punny Bunny.

The closest I could get to legless was slinking, which I know ain't the same thing. I am curious what rhyming pair you had in mind.

For for mine, autumn dance, I had in mind "fall ball".

I liked "slinking skink" and consider it the closest to meeting the game rules so far.  I was thinking, legless lizard ---------> fake snake.

Darn, I completely came up blank on autumn dance.  Good one!  This may be a harder game than I thought.

Dammit. The ball part is what my brain was dancing around but just would not go there.

I'll give you points for alliteration.

Not what I had in mind. Rowdy doesn't necessarily mean bad.

I still don;t quite grasp the rules

elephantine milliner   >>>> fatter hatter

So, do I leave one now, or only if you say I guessed right?  Or who decides what's "right"?

Dunno... maybe OP should edit the OP with some ground rules.

Until then I'm just gonna play by ear.

I don't think you have to guess the exact answer the poster had in mind, as long as it rhymes.  I love "fatter hatter!"
