“Abundance—Big party held in a bakery”

The word “abundance” does not mean “a bun dance,” but there is a joke definition:
 
“Abundance: Big party held in a bakery.”
 
The joke has been cited in print since 2000 and has been printed on a T-shirt. Authorship has been credited to Aiken Drum (in 2000), Douglas Aikens (in 2001) and Douglas Helsel (in 2003).
