“I was going to eat a spaghetti squash, but then I thought, ‘Nah, I butternut‘“

"Butternut” sounds like “better not.” “I’m a fan of squash puns, so I was going to like that, but then I decided I butternut” was posted on Twitter on August 26, 2016.

A joke was posted on Reddit—Jokes on September 19, 2017:

“I was going to eat a spaghetti squash, but then I thought, ‘Nah, I butternut.”


Wikipedia: Spaghetti squash
Spaghetti squash — or vegetable spaghetti — is a group of cultivars of Cucurbita pepo subsp. pepo. The fruit ranges from ivory to yellow/orange in color. The orange varieties have a higher carotene content. Its center contains many large seeds. Its flesh is bright yellow or orange. When raw, the flesh is solid and similar to other raw squash; when cooked, the flesh falls away from the fruit in ribbons or strands like spaghetti.

Wikipedia: Butternut squash
Butternut squash (Cucurbita moschata), sometimes known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma, is a type of winter squash that grows on a vine. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It has tan-yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds in the bottom. When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweeter and richer. It is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, magnesium, and potassium; and it is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin E.
