“What is a salmon’s least favorite type of pastry?"/"Bear claws.”

A pastry riddle is:

Q: What is a salmon’s least favorite type of pastry?
A: Bear claws.


The joke was posted on Reddit—Cleanjokes on March 10, 2018.


Wikipedia: Bear claw (pastry)
A bear claw is a sweet, yeast-raised pastry, similar to a Danish, originating in the United States during the mid-1920s. A bear claw is usually filled with almond paste, and sometimes raisins, and often shaped in a semicircle with slices along the curved edge, or rectangular with partial slices along one side. As the dough rises, the sections separate, evoking the shape of a bear’s toes, hence the name.

A bear claw may also be a yeast doughnut in a shape similar to that of the pastry. Such doughnuts may have an apple pie-style filling, or other fillings such as butter pecan, dates, cream cheese, grape or cherry. Bear claw may also refer to an apple fritter.

Seems that to be thematically appropriate, pastry bear claws should be stuffed with salmon.

Not sure why they call them “bear claws”; I’ve been swinging at spawning salmon for an hour and all I have to show for it is a soggy pastry.
