“What’s a vampire’s favorite fruit?"/"A necktarine.”

The nectarine isn’t featured in many jokes, but there is a pun:

Q: What’s a vampire’s favorite fruit?
A: A necktarine.


The pun was cited with other Halloween jokes on the newsgroup rec.humor on October 11, 1996.

“What’s a vampire’s favorite fruit?"/"A blood orange” and “What’s a vampire’s favorite ice cream?"/"Veinilla” are similar vampire riddles.
