“Wife has left me because of my fetish with touching pasta. I’m feeling cannelloni right now”

"Cannelloni” pasta sounds like “kind of lonely.” A popular pun is:

“Wife has left me because of my fetish with touching pasta. I’m feeling cannelloni right now.”

The joke became popular on Twitter on June 16, 2011.


Wikipedia: Cannelloni
Cannelloni (pronounced [kannelˈloːni]; Italian for “large reeds") are a cylindrical type of pasta generally served baked with a filling and covered by a sauce in Italian cuisine. Some types of cannelloni need to be boiled beforehand, while for others it is enough to use a more dilute sauce or filling.
