“Fruits and vegetables prevent constipation. That’s why they call it pro-deuce”

"Produce” sounds like “pro-deuce,” and a pun is:

“Fruits and vegetables prevent constipation. That’s why they call it pro-deuce.”

“Deuce” means “number two” (defecation). “Fruits and vegetables can help keep you regular. Pro-deuce! #PoopJoke” was posted on Twitter on May 1, 2013. “TIL that fruits and vegetables can help prevent constipation. I guess that’s why they call it pro-deuce” was posted on Reddit—Puns on September 4, 2017.

Did you know: Fruit and vegetables are packed with fiber and that’s why they call it “pro-deuce.”
