  • Fold: In geology, a fold is a bent/curved stack of strata due to deformation via high temperature and pressure. Obviously the word “fold” has a bunch of other non-geology definitions which can be used for puns – you can fold washing, “fold” (give up the round) in poker, worry about your business “folding” (bankruptcy), as a few examples.
  • Start a → Strata: As in “Strata fight” and “Strata family”
  • Underground: “Geologists are such hipsters – they’re only into underground stuff.”
  • Eruption: This word can be used outside of the volcanic context for a sneaky pun: “The geologists erupted into laughter at the silly pun.”
  • Interrupt →Interupt
  • Seduction → Subduction: “Subduction leads to orogeny
  • Seductive → Subductive
  • Monorail → Mineral
  • Origin → Erosion
  • Original → Erosional
  • Cliche → Caliche: The term “caliche” is pronounced like “ka-lee-chee”, so it’s not very close to the pronunciation of “cliche”, but that just makes this pun all the more terrible/great (and better used as a written pun than a spoken one).
  • Mixture → Conglomerate: In geology, a conglomerate is a a sedimentary rock composed of rounded fragments of smaller rocks cemented together within the sediment. In general usage, the term “conglomerate” just refers to a mixture or cluster. Some large corporations are also “conglomerates” because they’re really a cluster of smaller corporations.
  • More rain → Moraine: The term “moraine” refers to an accumulation of earth and rocks carried and finally deposited by a glacier.
  • Convergence: This word has a geology meaning (referring to tectonic plates coming together) and also, of course, the usual meaning – referring to anything coming together or intersecting.
  • Divergence: Similar to above.
  • Condiment → Continent
  • Continental breakfast
  • Size → Seis: A silly pun playing on “seismic”, “seismology”, etc.

  • Alcoholic → Alkalic: “He drinks way too much – he’s probably an alkalic.”
  • Affable → Amphibole: To be “affable” is to be friendly, good-natured, or easy to talk to. To be “amphibole” is to be a rock-forming silicate or aluminosilicate mineral.
  • Solicit → Silicic: A “silicic” rock is one that’s rich in silica. To “solicit” is to request, beg, seek or apply for.
  • Ratify → Stratify: As in “Both countries were due to stratify the treaty by the end of the month.”
  • Deposition: This term has a few non-geology meanings. First, it can refer to overthrowing someone (especially a monarch) – “The king’s deposition happened on the third day of protesting”. Second, it can refer to the giving of sworn evidence – “The deposition of 3 expert witnesses”. Finally, it can simply refer to depositing something. Deposition, in the geological sense, is the process in which sediments, soil and rocks are added to a landform or land mass.

Elephant Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on elephant puns! 🐘 This entry is a work-in-progress. If you know of any puns about elephants that we’re missing, please let us know in the comments at the end of this page!

Elephant Puns List

  • Irrelevant → Irrelephant: This is probably the most famous elephant pun. Sentence examples: “Your comment is irrelephant” and “I don’t care. That’s irrelephant.”
  • Relevant → Relephant: As in “I don’t have a comment that is relephant to this discussion.”
  • Heard → Herd: As in “I overherd them speaking about …” and “The last I herd, …” and “Your herd it here first.” and “You could have herd a pin drop.” and “Stop me if you’ve herd this one”
  • Every → Ivory: As in “Ivory now and then” and “Ivory so often” and “Ivory bit as good as …” and “Ivory last inch” and “Ivory which where” and “Each and ivory one”

  • I’ve already → Ivory-dy: As in “Ivory-dy explained it to you – I’m not explaining it again.”
  • Task → Tusk: As in “Are you up to the tusk?” and “It’s a thankless tusk” and “It’s hard to stay on tusk with all the noise” and “I’ve got a list of tusks that I need you to complete by the end of the day.”
  • Massive/Huge → Mammoth: Of course, a mammoth is not an elephant, but they’re closely associated with one another and so a mammoth pun may pass off as an elephant pun in the right context: “I’m completely full – that was a mammoth meal” and “A mammoth corporation”
  • Big: Simply using the word “big” with some corny emphasis may be a viable elephant pun: “So you know some elephant puns. BIG deal.”
  • (The) elephant in the room: This idiom refers to something obvious that has been intentionally ignored – usually due to embarrassment or awkwardness.
  • Seeing pink elephants: This is an idiom that mean “heavily intoxicated with alcohol”
  • White elephant: This is a phrase that is used to refer to a useless or unwanted object, especially if it is expensive.
  • (To) see the elephant: This is an idiom that is used to refer to “experiencing more than one wants to” or “learning a hard lesson” or “seeing combat, especially for the first time”
  • Weight / Ton / etc.: Since elephants weigh so much (they’re the largest non-extinct land animals), we may be able to play on this in the right context: “Thanks a ton!” and “Weight a minute…” and “A weight off my mind” and “Tons of (something)”
  • Trumpet: Elephants can make a loud sound that resembles a trumpet, and the word “trumpet” can also mean “proclaim widely or loudly” – e.g. “the team of British researchers trumpeted a major medical breakthrough”. In the right context you may be able to make a pun on this duel meaning/association.
  • Bull: A male elephant is called a “bull” (just like with bovine animals). Amongst an audience that is aware of this, you play on it: “A cock-and-bull story” and “Like a bull in a china shop” and “Bull-headed” and “Grab the bull by its horns” and “Full of bull” and “Bull’s-eye” and “Mess with the bull and you get the horns” and “Hung like a bull” and “Bull-headed” and “What a load of bull” and “Bullish (aggressively confident)” and “Like a red flag to a bull
  • How → Cow: A female elephant is called a cow. “Cow could you?” and “Cow come?” and “Cow so?” and “Cow you doing?” and “Cow’s the family?” and “Cow dare you!” and “Cow about that.”
  • Cow: See the cow puns entry for more cow puns (e.g. cowoperation, accowntability).
  • Half → Calf: A young elephant is called a calf: “I’m expecting to lose calf of my readership because of these puns.” and “I’m still calf asleep” and “I’ve got calf a mind to …” and “Calf measures”
  • Mum’ll → Mammal: As in “Quick! Hide! My mammal come down stairs any second.”
  • Drunk → Trunk: “You can’t drive. You’re trunk.”
  • Trunk: Other than referring to an elephant’s long “nose”, this term can refer to the trunk of a tree or to the trunk of the body (the torso). These alternate definitions can be used for word play.
  • Pro-bosses → Proboscis: This is another term for the elephants “nose” (and large noses of other mammals). Good luck on finding a context where this pun is useful 😛 Here’s an example sentence: “I’m not anti-bosses. They’re needed to run a company, but I’m not proboscis either.”
  • Grey/Gray: Elephants tend to have a greyish colour, and since this stereotype is well-known enough, a “grey” pun may pass off as a subtle elephant pun: “A grey area” and “Grey matter”
  • Wrinkles: Somehow mentioning “wrinkles” may be enough for a subtle elephant pun (since elephants are quire wrinkly) depending on your context. Some example sentences: “Let’s iron out the wrinkles in your argument.” and “There was a wrinkle in the proposal which stopped the project in its tracks”
  • Telephoned→ Telephant: As in “I telephant my niece to wish her happy birthday”

Panda Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on panda puns! 🐼 This list starts with puns specifically on the word “panda” and then also has a bunch of generic bear puns to back them up. Enjoy! 🙂

Panda 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 pandas that we’re missing, please let us know in the comments at the end of this page! Without further ado, here’s the list of panda puns:

  • Pander → Panda: “The newspapers are pandaing to people’s baser instincts.”
  • Pandemonium → Pandamonium: “What was originally a small argument ended in utter pandamonium.”

  • In danger → Endangered: Though it’s not really something to joke about, the Giant panda was once endangered (in 2016 it was downgraded to “vulnerable”). You might slip in the word “endangered” wherever you can (e.g. in place of “in danger” or similar) to make a cheeky panda pun.
