“What happens when two pastries divorce?"/"They have a custardy battle.”

"Custody” sounds like “custardy,” resulting in several puns. A typical joke was posted on the newsgroup bigweek.general on December 12, 2001:

“Husband and wife have argument in kitchen while she’s making trifle. She throws the mixture over him. They decide to divorce. He got custardy.”

English standup comedian Simon Munnery had one of the best jokes at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe with:

“Clowns divorce: custardy battle.”

“What happens when two pastries divorce? They have a custardy battle” was posted on Reddit on September 18, 2016.
