“What do you call two witches who live together?"/"Broommates.”

A popular Halloween riddle is:

Q: What do you call two witches who live together?
A: Broom mates!


“Broommate” and “broomate” (broom + roommate) has also been used as the spelling. The joke has been cited in print since at least 1993.
