Finding a better word for a joke

Finding a better word for a joke:

I have a new joke with the word "war," but the word "war" doesn't fit the pacing, and isn't quite what I mean. It also rhymes with another line.

So I use Wikitionary's "What links here" link for the word "war."

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Whatlinkshere/war

From this I get "pillage," a much closer word to what I mean, paces better, and doesn't rhyme.

This resource is my new thesaurus, because it includes associations that are different forms of speech whereas most old-school thesauri stick with the same form of speech as the referenced word.

Discuss.
