I need a word...

Something's been bugging me lately.

You know those little word plays we did as kids? I have one running through my head, and I need a word to complete it. Maybe you can help?


SEE YOU LATER,
ALLIGATOR





IN A WHILE,
CROCODILE





SEE YOU SOON,
RACCOON

...and here's the stumper...


I cannot think of a phrase for TURTLE!
What rhymes with TURTLE??

Help!

---------------
9:54AM - I went Googling to discover that, according to ForeWord Magazine, there is a book called

"Real Soon, Raccoon! What to Say After "See You Later, Alligator" and "After While, Crocodile"
by: Roger Sperberg; Jill Kimball, Illustrator

The review I read went on to say:

"The idea started simply enough. Upon leaving the building, a neighbor said, "See you later, alligator," to which Sperberg's son, Sam, replied, "After while, crocodile." Sam's mother, illustrator Jill Kimball, added "Real soon, raccoon." Sperberg said after that, he, his wife, and son would exchange similar lines as he left for work each day. The book grew out of these exchanges."

...still has me wondering about TURTLE.

Hurtle rhymes with turtle. It means to move rapidly.

So after real soon racoon, you could say, I'll hurtle, turtle.

Hi Dave,

I think the problem is that there is no parting words that rhymes with turtle.
