Wrap it with "TOOL"

I was watching "Umagang Kay Ganda" this morning while having breakfast. The segment was about wrapping gifts.
Rica: So how do you wrap a stuffed toy that has an irregular shape?

Guest: First, make sure the wrapper can span the entire gift. If not, then two wrappers pieced together are required.

She then proceeded with her demonstration.

Guest: (picking a sheet of wrapper). You do the wrapping like this...

Kuya Kim: What do you call that wrapper?

Guest: TULLE.

And here's the fun part.

Kuya Kim: (not knowing how TULLE is correctly spelled). T-O-O-L?

Guest: T-U-L-L-E.

An almost uncomfortable silence ensued.

While I nearly choked on my cereals.
