Puns are never in short supply. Whether you’re hanging out with friends, browsing social media or watching TV, corny jokes almost seem like they’re stalking you. The best thing about puns is their variety. Puns about puns, and puns about making puns, are some of the best and most groan-inducing jokes out there. Whether everyone cares to admit it or not, we love every single one of them.

Quick-Fire Quips

Sometimes, the shortest joke is the most rewarding. A clever play on words can catch any listener or reader by surprise. Once they process what they’ve heard, you can sit back and see if their reaction is to be giddy or shoot a glare. Either way, you got what you wanted.

  1. Ah, but a good pun is its own reword.

  2. Think of this as pun-ishment for making fun of my puns.

Jokes With a Pun-chline

On the reverse side of quick puns, we have puns with punchlines. These two-phase jokes let the listener know something cheesy is on its way, but there’s nothing they can do about it. They just need to sit back and enjoy (or learn to enjoy) the masterful wordplay you are blessing them with.
