Maybe it's because bull is pronounce 'bool' while skull is 'skull'. It's rhyming words not similarly spelt words.

No they don't, buck1017. They are pronounced just as choosegoose said in the portion of America outside of buck's head. Parenthetically, the words choose and goose have a similar relationship, which I guess makes this a little bit ironic.

I agree with buck1017. Cow brow makes more sense than bull skull, but bull and skull rhyme according to one of the ways I commonly hear them pronounced. I sometimes hear skull pronounced skawl, but I've never heard bull pronounced bool.

Bull, skull, full, and dull rhyme in Washington (where I live), at least. But I have heard people in other parts of the US pronounce the vowels in full and bull like a mix between the A in ball and the U in skull.... Anyway they all rhyme to me.

For me, I find this incredibly interesting. In Ohio, we say bull and full the same, and then skull and dull the same. I just think that's so cool, how even within one country and we all speak the same language, words can sound totally different between group of people.

TL;DR but this thread is so weird that I took a screenshot for my phonics instruction course to look at. We're taught to respect regional differences in pronunciation but according to the IPA, the medial vowel in "bull" is the /ʊ/ phoneme and is different from the medial vowel in "skull", which is the /ʌ/ phoneme or the short u sound. If you are pronouncing "bull" with the same vowel sound as "up", you are the one with the regional or non-standard pronunciation. You are not wrong in that sense, however you are not using a standard pronunciation. In standard English, "book" and "buck" would not be homophones.

It depends on context. If you say "Poor Butterfly" in a normal manner, "poor" will rhyme with "door." If you give the first word an exaggerated emphasis, then it sounds more like "newer."

"Door" is always just like "dore", whereas some people say "poor" as "po-or", making it sort of like a two-syllable word.

Must be a British thing. In North America, "poor" rhymes with "newer", and "door" rhymes with "more". It's "oo" versus hard "o".

It took me a while to get the last one because of I was thinking of quarry as prey instead of a pit. Fir fur was the closest I could come until I thought of pine, and then just started typing every word I could that rhymed with it.

I don't think Quizmaster has used a dictionary for this. It's pointless trying for this quiz because there's no way that anyone could get "Dance" and "pants" to rhyme unless they're speaking with a non-standard accent.

pænts

Totally different.

Ooh, the arrogance of believing in 'standard' accents. I am from Southern England, and my accent is about as RP as it gets, but I often say 'dants', especially when singing - 'dahnce' sounds preposterous in a song. Check out 'Transmission' for Joy Division, and try to 'dahnce' along to that.
