Nothing Rhymes with Gehrz (Episode 2)

What do the following words have in common?

Easter, museum, nostalgia, Sabbath, trump, wisecrackery

1. They don’t rhyme with Gehrz. But then, it seems that nothing (in English) does.

(One follow-up/correction: in the middle of our conversation, I was searching on my iPhone for an article I’d read defending the virtues of nostalgia. I mistakenly credited it to philosopher James K.A. Smith — who actually wrote a critique of nostalgia! — but it was actually this New Yorker piece by novelist Michael Chabon.)
