Apple Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on apple puns! 🙂 Whether you’re looking for apple puns for captions, silly pickup lines or team/business names, we hope you find what you’re looking for.

Note that this entry is mainly focused on apple, the fruit, rather than Apple, the company. So while you wont find any Steve Jobs puns here, the puns in this entry that are specifically on the word “apple” itself could also be used in the context of Apple, the computer company.

Candy Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on candy puns! 🙂 This entry covers general candy-related topics and also specific candy types and brands. Regarding candy brand names, I’ve tried to stick to international brands that most readers would recognise, but there may be a few brands in here which are specific to certain regions. Also, in some cases there is a fine line between candy and dessert, so you may find (what you may class as) dessert puns in this entry too.

Finally, the word “candy” is a North American thing, and so this article’s title might be translated to “sweets puns” or “lolly puns” depending on where you’re from 😉

Pizza Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on pizza puns! 🙂 The most common pizza puns directly involve the word “pizza”, and this entry has its fair share of those, but it also includes a bunch of puns about pizza-related topics. The list is fairly short by Punpedia standards, so if you’ve got one that we’re missing, please post it in the comments at the end!

A quick side note before we begin: I feel obligated to remind readers that pizza is generally a terribly unhealthy food. It’s delicious, but not something people should really be putting in their bodies regularly if they don’t want heart disease to kill them at 50. Healthier wholegrain pizzas with plant-based toppings are becoming more and more common at pizzerias. Eat for your health, people! 🙂

Banana Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on banana puns! 🙂 This is a relatively small entry by our standards because it’s such a specific topic, but please post in the comments if you’ve got a banana pun that we don’t.

The most common and popular banana puns are plays on “peel”, but there are a couple more based on the names of different banana varieties and banana-related concepts.

Banana Puns List

Each item in this list describes a pun, or a set of puns which can be made by applying a rule. If you know of any puns about bananas that we’re missing, please let us know in the comments at the end of this page!

  • Feel → Peel: As in “You can peel it in your bones.” and “I like the look and peel of the product.” and “I’m trying to get the peel for it.” and “These banana puns are making me peel unwell.” and “I peel a bit put out.” and “I’m peeling my age.” and “Peel the burn”
  • Peel: This word is sometimes used in ways which don’t refer to removing an outer covering: “The aeroplane peeled off from the rest of the formation and did a trick.” In general “peel off/out” means to move away quickly (especially with screeching tires, if it refers to a car).
  • Appeal → Appeel / A peel: “He’s so appeeling!” and “The court allowed one final a peel.” and “You need to a peel to their sense of honour.” and “I’m trying to appeel to your better judgement” and “They have 48 hours to appeel the decision.”
  • Banana: As in “I am bananas for you.” and “He’s going bananas!” and “Banana republic” and “She’s the top banana around here.” and “No worries, that’s a one-banana problem.”
  • Bunch: As in “Thanks a bunch.” and “Pick of the bunch.” and “A bunch of fools.”
  • Bar nana → Banana: As in “Everyone is coming banana – she’s got an appointment.” (“Nana” is a term for “Grand mother” is some places)
  • Yell over → Yellowver: As in “We had to yellowver the blaring speakers in order to communicate.”
  • Ripe: As in “Ripe old age” and “When the time is ripe” and “Ripe for the picking”
  • Right → Ripe: As in “A step in the ripe direction” and “I’ll be ripe with you” and “Damn ripe.” and “Be ripe back.” and “Inalienable human ripe.” and “Her heart is in the ripe place.” and “If you play your cards ripe.” and “Your have the ripe to remain silent.” and “Ripe down your alley.” and “Step ripe up!”
  • Freckles: Bananas that are at a later stage of ripeness develop black spots which are sometimes called “freckles”. If you can manage to use this word in your specific context, then it may constitute a subtle banana pun.
  • Spotty: As in “Reception is a bit spotty at the moment.” and “His record for environmental protection is a bit spotty.”
  • Havin’ dish → Cavendish / Havendish: The term “Cavendish” is the name of the most popular variety of bananas. Example: “I’m havendish after dish of this amazing food.”
  • Havin’ dis (Having this) → Cavendish: As in “I’ve been cavendish re-occuring nightmare.”
  • Givin’ dis (Giving this) → Cavendish: As in ” I don’t know how to do it, but I’m cavendish a shot.”
  • Given’ dis (Given this) → Cavendish: As in “I was cavendish for my birthday last year.”
  • Caffeine dis (Caffeine this) → Caven dish: As in “I’m going to try to wean myself off coffee and other things with caven dish month.”
  • Lady finger: “Lady finger” is a variety of bananas. If you can mention the words “lady” and “finger” in close proximity then you might get away with a sneaky banana pun (using the words “ladies” and “fingers” as necessary might be fine too).
  • Split: As in “We split the profits equally.” and “Split personality” and “Split your sides with laughter” and “Split decision” and “Let’s split!” (This pun is in reference to the “banana split” dessert)
  • Got another banana pun? Please post it in the comments below! 🙂

Beer Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on beer puns! Whether you need a name for your latest craft brew, a tagline for your beer-related business, a beer pun team name, or just some beer puns for their own sake, I hope you find this entry useful!

There’s a lot of depth to beer culture and so some of the puns in this entry may go over your head if you’re not a brewer or beer fanatic. I’ve tried to order the pun list so that it starts with general beer puns that most people will understand, and then as you go down the puns should get more obscure. That said, I have not done a perfect job of it, so apologies if there are some confusing ones here and there near the top.

A quick side note: Drinking alcohol gives your brain a reward that it didn’t earn. If you drink too often then your brain learns that the best (easiest) way to feel good is to drink more alcohol, rather than do the normal things that make you feel good (work hard, accomplish things, help others, etc.). Be careful messing with your neurotransmitters! 🙂

Tea Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on tea puns! Tea puns sit a few steps under coffee puns in terms of popularity, and are a little more “obscure” thanks to the depth of tea culture and the many unusual foreign (usually Asian) names of the different tea varieties.

There are a bunch of “entry-level” tea puns, and of course these mostly revolve around the word “tea” itself (positivi-tea, socie-tea, communi-tea, etc.). If you scroll lower in the puns list you’ll get to the more esoteric tea puns that might require knowledge of some lesser known tea terminology.

As usual, you can find tea jokes, phrases/idioms and visual tea puns further down the page. Enjoy! 🙂

Coffee Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on coffee puns! Whether you’re looking for coffee puns for a photo caption, crafting the perfect coffee pun pickup line, hunting for coffee one-liners, or just want some corny pun-based coffee jokes, I hope you’re able to find what you’re looking for here 🙂 If not, please leave me a comment at the bottom of the page!

Most coffee puns centre around one of 3 general topics: names of different types of coffee (espresso, mocha, etc.), coffee preparation utensils/procedures (plunger, grind, roast, mug, caffeine etc.) and coffee ingredients/products (sugar, grounds, cream, etc.). Mug puns seem to be a particular favourite on the internet and are included in this entry, but may also get their own entry at some point.

As usual there are related words, related phrase, coffee jokes, and visual coffee puns (comics, memes, etc.) further down the page. Enjoy!

  • Strong, Dark: As in “There’s a strong, dark storm heading our way.”

  • Break: The term “coffee break” is well-known enough that you might be able to make a very subtle coffee pun using the word “break”. For example: “Break new ground” and “Break out in a cold sweat” and “Break ranks” and “Break your heart” and “Make a clean break”.

  • Depressed → Despressod: As in “I’m feeling a little despressod.”
  • Brazilian: Brazilian coffee is famous world-wide, and so the term “Brazilian” could be used as a coffee pun in the right context (so long as the usage is not referring to Brazilian coffee, obviously!).
  • Turkish: Same explanation as above.
  • Muddy: This is a term used to describe coffee that has lots of sediment/particles. Example usage: “The egg industry muddies the waters by funding rigged studies on cholesterol.”
  • Froth: As in “All froth and no substance.”
  • Show → Joe: A cup of coffee is sometimes called a “cup of Joe” and so “Joe” can be used as a synonym for “coffee”.

  • Roast: This can refer to when someone is being criticised severely, but is also an obvious reference to roasted coffee beans. Example: “If you waste her time she’ll roast you.”
  • Drip: Refers to a “weak, ineffectual” person (aka: pushover, weakling, doorstop). It’s related to coffee because “drip brewing” is a popular method of preparing coffee. Example: “He doesn’t enjoy coffee puns – he’s such a drip!”
  • Cold press: If you can incorporate the words “cold” and “press” into a sentence in close proximity, you can probably make a cold press coffee pun: As in “No need to be cold. Pressing on, …” and “Stay away from me! If I catch your cold I’m pressing charges.”
  • Milky: This means “weak and compliant”. Example: “They just talk that way to make you turn milky.”

  • Fair tradeThis term refers to a social movement which seeks to help producers in developing countries and promote sustainable farming. It’s often used to refer to “fair trade coffee”. We can use it as a coffee pun fairly easily: “I’ll stop making coffee puns, and you give me ten dollars. Is that a fair trade?”
  • *sip*: If a word contains the “sip” sound, it’s an opportunity for a terrible pun on “sip” as in “to sip your coffee” (so long as you emphasise the “sip” part somehow): Mississipi, disiplinarian, munisipality, presipitate, partisiples, presipitated, prinsipally, resipient, resiprocity.
  • *sep*: If a word contains the “sep” sound it’s a chance to make a terribly corny “sip” pun (perhaps emphasise with hyphens or underline/bold): ac-sip-tability (acceptability), bisips (biceps), consiption (conception), consipt (concept), desiptive, impersiptable, desiptive, misconsiption, persiptive, resiption, resiptionist, resiptivity, resiptors, siparatists (seperatists), siparation, siparate, susiptability, intersipt.
  • Happy → Frappe: As in “Don’t worry, be frappe.” and “Frappe birthday to you!” and “Frappe go lucky” and “Go to your frappe place” and “Not a frappe camper!” and “We’re just one big frappe family.”
  • Or lay → Au lait: This means “with milk” in French so “cafe au lait” means “coffee with milk”. It is pronounced like “aw lay”. Example pun: “We gonna get up and do something au lait here for a bit longer?”
  • Or lie → Au lait: (See explanation above) As in “Don’t cheat au lait – it’s immoral.”
  • Cup: This has a few different meaning outside of the normal one. The term “cup” is used in the measurement of bra sizes, and can be used as a verb for “form into the shape of a cup” (especially when referring to hands). These other definitions might be opportunities for subtle cup puns / coffee puns.
  • Robust → Robusta: Robusta is a variety of coffee (the other main one being Arabica). The adjective “robust” means “strong and/or healthy” or “rich and flavoursome”. Example: “He is a very robusta young fellow.”
  • They can’t → Decant: As in “They’re banned. Decant come back here.” and “Decant stop me. I can do anything.”
  • Percolate: This is a term  which describes a part of the coffee brewing process, but it’s actually a more general word that means “filter gradually through a porous surface or substance”. Thus we can use it as a synonym for “spread” or “be disseminated” or “filter”.
  • Earn → Urn: As in “I don’t urn much at the moment, but I’m working my way up.” and “You’ve urned it.” and “Urn an honest penny.” (This is a reference to hot-water “urns” which are often used to boil water for coffees in “break rooms”/kitchens at work places)
  • Felt her → Filter: As in “I filter breathing down the back of my neck.” and “I filter gaze fall on me.”
  • Filled her → Filter: As in “She has filter coffee pun quota for today.”
  • Barely → Barley: Barley coffee (or “caffè d’orzo”) is a widely available coffee alternative in Italy which is caffeine-free. If you’re particularly deep down the coffee pun rabbit hole, then this may be a viable pun.
  • Plunge → Plunger: As in “Take the plunger!” and “She jumped form the jetty and plungered into the sea.” (A reference to “coffee plungers“)
  • I forgot → Afforgato: As in “Afforgato where I parked my car.” and ” I had another coffee pun but affogato it.” (Affogato is an Italian coffee-based dessert)
  • Grandma → Crema: As in “Crema just doesn’t stop talking.” and “My crema make the most amazing hot chocolate.” (Crema is the name for the brownish foam on the top of freshly made espresso.)
  • Grammar → Crema: As in “Your crema is terrible.” and “Crema Nazis just like to feel good about themselves.”
  • Puck: This refers to compacted, spent coffee grounds from a portafilter. A few different puns can be made from this: “Oh puck!” and “The child’s face puckered, ready to cry.” and “Don’t press your puck.” and “Puck of the draw.” and “Beginner’s puck.” and “A bigger bang for your puck.” and “Puck naked.” and “Make a quick puck.”
  • Pull: Espresso shots are “pulled” – a holdover from when machines were lever operated. This may be s subtle one depending on the audience. Examples: “She doesn’t pull any punches.” and “Are you pulling my leg?” and “Pull the plug.” and “Pull your hair out” and “Pull yourself together!” and “Pull your finger out”
  • Nutty: A commonly used adjective in coffee lingo to describe a pleasant flavour of walnut, almond, hazelnut or other nuts. Examples: “Your coffee puns are a little nutty.” and “He came up with quite a few nutty proposals.”
  • Saucy / Saucier → Saucer: This is a corny one. “Saucy” has different meanings in different places. Sometimes it has a sexual connotation, other times it means “cheeky”. You’ll have to construct your pun with the audience in mind.
  • Settle → Kettle: As in “Kettle down everyone.” and “We should kettle this out of court.” and “I’ve got a score to kettle.”
