“I saw an Elvis impersonator covered in cream and black cherries, singing ‘In the Gâteau‘“

"Gâteau” (plural is “gâteaux") is French for “cake.” It sounds like the word “ghetto.” Both “gâteau” and “"gâteaux" have been used in food puns that have been printed on several images.

“#punchlineswithoutajoke And Elvis said, ‘In the gateaux’”—a pun on the Elvis Presley song “In the Ghetto” (1969) was posted on Twitter on July 2, 2009. “When i was a kid people used to cover me in cream and put a cherry on my head, it was tough being brought up in the gateau” was posted on Twitter by funny humour on April 19, 2010.


Wikipedia: Gâteaux
Gâteaux may refer to:

. plural of French: gâteau, meaning cake

When Elvis was born he had a sponge cake for a bed, cherries for a pillow and was covered in fresh cream.
He was born ‘In The Gateaux’
