The title comes from the commonly held belief that no word in the English language rhymes with "orange." The strip was first syndicated in 1995. The only word that rhymes with orange, is sporange, a rare alternative for sporangium. This word means a botanical term for a part of a fern or similar plant.(From Google-Words that rhyme with orange-google search) While the strip has no named recurring characters, common themes include cats, dogs, and absurdities of modern life. It appears in over 400 newspapers daily. It has won the Silver Reuben for "Best Newspaper Panel Cartoon" from the National Cartoonists Society, in 2007 and 2009, 2012 and 2014.[1]
