“Why are there no jokes about turkey giblets?"/"Because the punchlines are offal.”

A turkey giblets riddle is:

Q: Why are there no jokes about turkey giblets?
A: Because the punchlines are offal.


The riddle has been cited in print since at least December 2013, when it was included in a list of Christmas crackers.


Wikipedia: Offal
Offal /ˈɒfəl/, also called variety meats, pluck or organ meats, refers to the internal organs and entrails of a butchered animal. The word does not refer to a particular list of edible organs, which varies by culture and region, but includes most internal organs excluding muscle and bone. As an English mass noun, the term “offal” has no plural form. Some cultures shy away from offal as food, while others use it as everyday food, or in delicacies.
