“Paper or plastic for my French bread? I don’t care. Just baguette”

"Baguette” sounds a bit like “bag it.” A pun is:

“Paper or plastic for my French bread? I don’t care. Just baguette.”

“Also french? here is a joke: French stores ask if you want your things in a paper or plastic baguette” was posted on Twitter on March 18, 2011. “Paper or plastic? Yeah, just baguette” was posted on Twitter on April 30, 2012.


Wikipedia: Baguette
A baguette (English: /bæˈɡɛt/; French pronunciation: ​[baˈɡɛt]) is a long, thin loaf of French bread[2] that is commonly made from basic lean dough (the dough, though not the shape, is defined by French law). It is distinguishable by its length and crisp crust.

A baguette has a diameter of about 5 or 6 centimetres (2 or 2⅓ in) and a usual length of about 65 centimetres (26 in), although a baguette can be up to a metre (39 in) long.

Yesterday I bought some bread. The grocery store cashier asked me if I wanted paper or plastic. “I don’t care,” I said. “Just baguette.”

He buys bread, and the baker asks if he’d like his bread bagged in paper or plastic. The guy replies, “Baguette however you want”.
