“For lunch today, I just put some ham and pineapple in a bap. Because that’s Hawaii roll”

"That’s Hawaii roll” sounds a bit like “That’s how I roll.” A food joke was posted on Twitter on December 11, 2010:

“Spicy tuna and cucumber makizushi that’s Hawaii Roll.”

A more popular form of the joke was posted on Twitter on February 8, 2012:

“I’ve put some ham and pineapple in a crusty bap. That’s Hawaii Roll.”
