A Question for My Canadian Readers

My son made a rhyme today.  He noted that 'hockey' rhymes with 'gnocchi' (why my three year old knows what gnocchi is, is another question).  I was just wondering - Toronto has the largest population of Italians outside of Italy.  Most of those Italian Canadians watch hockey and eat gnocchi I imagine. Have any of those Italian Canadians who watch hockey and eat gnocchi written a poem which features 'hockey' rhyming with 'gnocchi'?

Is my son the first person to notice that gnocchi sounds like hockey?

UPDATE - Apparently not ...
