    My college roommate would always substitute the word 'platypus' whenever anyone was trying to remember a word. For instance:

    Me: 'You know that thing, you use it in a garden. I can't think of what it's called-- you, know, a...'
    Roommate: 'Platypus?'
    Me: 'No, not platypus. You know, not a rake, not a hoe, but...'
    Roommate: 'Platypus!'
    Me: ..... Nevermind.

    I do the same thing with the actor "Ving Rhames". It really seems to throw people.
    Friend: Who was that actress in that movie wearing leotards and a tutu?
    Me: Oh, you mean Ving Rhames.... LOL

    It's a thing. It rhymes with ving.
