The-power-of-words
­Like many people with mental disabilities, I enjoy for some reason rhyming words that the meanings are not connected to each other.
     —Elliott, Episode 35: Fireproof @44:10

Something Elliott really, really, really enjoys. Often the Floppers' discussion devolves into listing words which sound alike, to the delight and fury of the listeners. More broadly, the behaviour falls into the "naming things related to other things" phenomenon.

This bit originated in Episode 74, Valentine’s Day, in a letter from listener John who wrote:

"While listening to a Flop House episode last year, it occurred to me that the domain wordssoundlikeeachother.com is available and may be a more appropriate home for your show."
—Listener John's letter from Episode 74 @ 41:46
Later, a super-fan purchased the domain wordssoundlikeeachother.com, configuring it to redirect to the Flop House's blog.  Said super-fan has subsequently let this domain expire, partially in protest of the fact that the Original Peaches could never accurately recall or convey the actual joke that the domain name embodied—much like this very wiki page.  It was a revelation—Wow, words sound like each other!—not the name of a category (Words that sound like other words.)
