“What do you call thistle that grows in far away places?"/"Thattle.”

"Thistle” seems to imply the existence of “thattle,” like the words “this” and “that.”

“Are you sure that’s a thistle?  Looks more like a thattle to me...” was posted on Twitter by Romeo Vitelli on September 18, 2013. “The existence of a thistle necessarily implies the existence of a thattle as posited by classic rock and roll number ‘thattle be the day.’ Whether this hypothetical weed would be as prickly as its factual counterpart is unknown. All I know is, this rash is getting worse” was posted on Twitter by Matthew Craig on August 4, 2019.

A riddle was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on November 5, 2020:

Q: What do you call thistle that grows in far away places?
A: Thattle.



Wikipedia: Thistle
Thistle is the common name of a group of flowering plants characterised by leaves with sharp prickles on the margins, mostly in the family Asteraceae. Prickles can also occur all over the plant – on the stem and on the flat parts of the leaves. These prickles are an adaptation that protects the plant from being eaten by herbivores. Typically, an involucre with a clasping shape similar to a cup or urn subtends each of a thistle’s flowerheads.
