Funny fictional berries

Today at lunch, a coworker was telling us about a berry found in the Amazon rain forest that’s being put into different juices and such, but he couldn’t remember the name. Another coworker commented, “It’s the genetically altered Boo Berry,” and we all laughed. (The actual berry is the açaí berry (pronounced [asaˈi]).)

As an off-the-cuff joke, I think that was great, but it made me wonder if there’s a better choice for that joke given more time to think about it. I considered:

  • Boo Berry
  • Franken Berry
  • Smurf Berry

I think my favorite is Smurf Berry. Smurfs are always funny.
