“What did the Italian say after he ate an eel pizza?"/"That’s a moray.”

The 1953 song “That’s Amore” has the famous line, “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie that’s amore!” The Italian word “amore” means “love.” A “moray” is an eel.

“Dominos should do an eel pizza and call it ‘that’s a moray’” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on February 5, 2015. “What did the Italian say after he ate an eel pizza? That’s a moray” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on October 31, 2017.

“An eel walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘Back for more, eh (moray)?’” is another moray eel joke.


Wikipedia: That’s Amore
“That’s Amore” is a 1953 song by composer Harry Warren and lyricist Jack Brooks. It became a major hit and signature song for Dean Martin in 1953. Amore (pronounced [aˈmoːre]) means “love” in Italian.

Wikipedia: Moray eel
Moray eels, or Muraenidae, are a cosmopolitan family of eels. The approximately 200 species in 15 genera are almost exclusively marine, but several species are regularly seen in brackish water, and a very few are found in fresh water.

Pizza places should make eel pizza. Advertise as follows: “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s a Moray”
