Bear Puns

Here’s a Punpedia entry all about bear puns, and as it turns out there are a lot of them! Our list of bear puns is composed of 3 main categories. Firstly, there are a tonne of bear puns based purely around the word “bear” (bearings, barbearian, bearly, …). Then there are those based around species of bears like the polar bear and grizzly bear, and also around pseudo-bears like the koala bear. And finally, there are a few puns based around bear-related topics like paws, hibernation and claws.

If you’re looking for bear puns in images (memes, visual puns, jokes), then you’ll want to scroll towards the bottom of the page – there’s a section for those. There’s also a section for bear-related words to help you come up with your own bear puns.

As usual, if you have a bear pun that we don’t, we’d love for you to share it with us! There’s a comments section at the bottom of the page.

If there’s enough demand, toads may eventually get their own entry.

Otter Puns

This entry is all about otter puns! Otter is the common name of a family of semi-aquatic carnivorous mammals that are closely related to weasels. Otters are sometimes confused with beavers, which are a completely different animal. Beavers build dams, are herbivores, and are relatives of rats. The two most well-known otter puns (thanks to their meme-fame) are on the words “utter” and “other” as in: “Otterly deplorable!” and “My significant otter” but there are lots more to be made!

As you’ll see, otter puns mostly play on words that contain anything sounding vaguely like “otter”, but there are some more sneaky puns to be made based on well known characteristics of otters and their behaviour.

  • Field → Feeld: Words containing the “eel” sound (or similar) can be used as homophonic puns with he right emphasis: appeeling, feeld, ceeling (ceiling), automobeel, battlefeeld, ameeliorate, conceelment, deeler, eelongation, geelotine (guillotine), heeler, heelium, ideelism, memorabeelia, reveel, repeel, reelization, reely, reeligion, reelationships, reelaxation, sheeld, steeling, sheela, seel, surreelism, transeelvania, yeelding.
  • Ill → Eel: “I’m not feeling very well, I’m afraid I might be eel.”
  • I’ll → Eel’l: “Eel’l have to wait a few more days.”
  • *ihl* → *eel*: Words with the “ihl” sound in them somewhere can be used as eel puns with a bit of phonetic twisting: abeelities (abilities), acceptabeelity (acceptability), accountabeelity, acreelic, adaptabeelity, admissibeelity, affeeliate, affeeliation, applicabeelity, arteellery, availabeelity, barceelona, beelated, beelief, beweeldered, beweelderment, beelow, beeloved, beelies, beelongings, beelong, brazeelians, breelliant, beelding, caterpeellars, capabeelities, cheeldren, civeelian, conceeliation, credibeelity, culpabeelity, daffodeel, debeelitating, deelectable, deelay, deeliberately, deeliberation, deelightful, deelinquent, deelivered, deelusion, desirabeelity, diseellusionment, durabeelity, eelaborated, eelastic, eelation, eelections, eelectorate, eelectrical, eelectrode, eelectromagnetic, eelectronic, eelectrostatic, eeligibility, eelimination, eellipse, eelongated, eelusive, exheelaration, faceelitate, fameeliarity. This is only a small number of the possible puns that can be created using this pattern. To create more, use a tool like this one.
  • That’s amore → That’s a moray: “When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s a moray.” The word “amore”, pronounced “ah-mor-ray” means “love” in Italian and was made famous by the singer Dean Martin. A “moray eel” is a type of eel.
  • More ale → Moray-eel: “Drinking moray-eel is not a good idea.”
  • Morale → Moray-eel: “Captain, the army’s moray-eel is low.”
  • More → Mor-ay: A bit laboured, but still possible: “Some mor-ay people will arrive soon.”

  • Congo → Conger: “Conger is a republic in central Africa.”
  • Congo → Conger: “Come on! Join the conger line.” (See conga line Wikipedia entry if you’ve never heard of it.)
  • Electric: Electric eels are famous enough that you could probably use just the word “electric” as an eel pun, with no modification to its phonetics. If you need more emphasis, you could use “eelectric”. Same with electricity, electrostatic, etc. In the right context you may also get away with using some other electricity-related terms as eel puns: short circuit, static, current, volt, ampere, voltage, watt, kilowatt, electrify, circuit, arc, electrocute, charge, power.
  • Elder → Elver: “I was always told to respect my elvers according to their desert.” An elver is a young eel.
  • Elderly → Elverly: “An elverly couple lives in that house.” An elver is a young eel.
  • Hell of a → Elver: “We had an elver time on our last adventure.”
  • Hell → Eel: “Eel hath no fury like an anguilliform scorned.”
  • Foray → F-moray: Very laboured! “I wrote this during my first f-moray into poetry.”
  • ? → Anguilliform: All eels are part of the “anguilliform” biological taxonomic order. Got a pun for this? Please share it in the comments!
  • ? → Leptocephalus: A leptocephalus is the slender transparent larva of eels. Got a pun for this? Please share it in the comments!

As you can see our eel puns list is still short! If you’d like to help us out, this source of eel-related words may be handy (as might this source). If you come up with any puns for these words, please share them in the comments!

Squid Puns

This entry is all about squid! As you’ll notice, the majority of squid puns are just seeing how many words you can fit “squid” into without completely destroying the original phonetics.

You might also like to check out the Punpedia entries on fish punsshark puns, beach puns and crab puns for related wordplay.

As with all entries on Punpedia, if you’ve got a great squid pun, you can post it in the comments and one of our curators will add it to this entry.

Squid Puns List

Each item in this list of squid puns is either a simple word-swap (e.g. kidding → squidding) or it may be a general rule from which multiple puns can be made. In the case of general rules, the asterisks sign (*) represents one or more letters.

  • Inkling: As in “I have an inkling that he’s lying.”
  • Inc* → Ink*: Most words that starts with “inc” can be turned into an squid pun (because most squid can release ink). You can use this list of words starting with “inc” to invent your own. Here are some examples: inklude, inkrease, inkome, inkorporate, inklusion, inkur, inkredible, inkonvenience, inkapable, inkompetence, inkubate, inkursion, inkumbent, inkorrect, inkonsistency, inkoherence, inkerceration, inkrements, inkonspicuous, inkarnate, incapacitated.
  • Kid → Squid: As in “Yeah, she is the smartest squid in her class.”
  • Kidding → Squidding: As in “I was just squidding!”
  • Kid* → Squid*: Generalising the above pun, the prefix “kid” can be replaced with “squid” as follows: squidding (kidding), squidnapped (kidnapped), squidney (kidney), squid (kid).
  • ?id* → Squid*: If a word begins with “?id” where ‘?’ represents any letter, then this prefix can sometimes be replaced with “squid”. For example: squiddle (middle), squidlife crisis (midlife crisis), squidget (midget), squiddle (riddle), squidiculous (ridiculous), squideotape (videotape), squiddish (yiddish), squidth (width), squidow (widow), squidget (widget).
  • Cracking → Kraken: As in “Hahaha you’re kraken me up!”
  • Bid → Squid: As in “I squid you farewell!”
  • Bidder → Squider: As in “The vase with go the the highest squidder.”
  • Did → Squid: As in “I squid not eat the cookie! He’s lying!”
  • Didn’t → Squidn’t: As in “I squidn’t mean to bother you.”
  • Ten tickles → Ten-tickles: As in “Surely ten-tickles would make anyone laugh?”
  • *s quit → *s squid: If the word “quit” follows a word ending in “s” it could work as a squid pun: “The main reason smokers squid is because of family pressure.” and “Quit means squid!”
  • Quid → Squid: As in “Mate, you still owe me 10 squid from that bed the other night.” The term “quid” is slang for “pound” or “dollar” depending on the region.
  • Accidentally → Acsquidentally: As in “I acsquidentally dropped my plate.”
  • Acidification → Asquidification: As in “This farming land has been ruined by asquidification.”
  • Incidentally → Insquidentally: As in “The drugs was discovered only insquidentally after their arrest.”
  • Assiduously → Asquiduously: As in “He assquiduously cleaned every nook and cranny.”
  • Coincidentally → Coinsquidentally: As in “Do you know his name, coinsquidentally?”
  • Subsidiary → Subsquidiary: As in “No, it’s a subsquidiary of that company.”
  • Reconsider → Reconsquider: As in “Please, I beg you to reconsquider.”
  • Insidious → Insquidious: As in “The insquidious erosion of rights and liberties.”
  • Bleak → Beak: As in “The outlook is beak.”

As you can see our squid puns list is still quite short! If you’d like to help us out, the following squid-related words still need puns: calamari, cephalopod, beak, dibranchate, leviathan, ink sac, tentacles, decapod, octapod. If you come up with any puns for these words, or any other squid-themed words, please share them in the comments!

Tuna Puns

Tuna puns! A tuna is a marine fish that’s closely related to Mackerel, and is known for being one of the fastest open-water fish in the ocean. It’s particularly special because it is one of only two fish species that are warm blooded (and there are a lot of fish species!). It’s also one of the few fish species that gets its own entry on Punpedia!

You might also like to check out the Punpedia entries on fish punsshark puns, beach puns and water puns for related wordplay. This entry is focused mainly around wordplay with the word “tuna”.

As with all entries on Punpedia, if you’ve got a great tuna pun, you can post it in the comments and one of our curators will add it to this entry.

These terms are all related to tuna, but we don’t have puns for them yet: albacore, tunny, bonito, yellowfin, bluefin, tuna fish, skipjack, southern blurfin, atlantic bluefin. If you can come up with any puns for these, please share them in the comments!

Crab Puns

Halfway through a pun battle about crabs? Naming your new hermit crab? Or maybe you just want to stock up on some crab puns for future reference. Whatever the case, this Punpedia entry is all about crabs and crustaceans, so you’re in the right place!

You may also like to read the entries on beach punsocean puns, water puns, fish puns, boat puns, shark puns, whale puns and dolphin puns.

Not that this entry also includes lobster puns, prawn puns, and more generally, crustacean puns. If you’re looking for visual crab puns (memes, comics, images), scroll to the bottom of this page.

Crab Puns List

Below is list of puns for crab-related topics with associated example sentences for each. Most of these puns are terrible, which is probably exactly what you’re after, but there are a few diamonds in the rough, so get digging! Oh and some items explain a “pattern” which can be applied to create many crab puns. In these items, the asterisk, “*”, denotes a wild card (one or more letters).

Remember, there’s lobster puns, shellfish puns, and other crab-related puns mixed throughout, so if you’re having a purely crab-based pun battle or something like that, then just know that not all of these will be relevant 🙂

Fish puns! One of the most famous categories of puns on the internet, and that’s what this Punpedia entry is all about. Fish puns overlap a little with the entries on shark puns, beach puns, boat puns and water puns, so feel free to check out those articles for some related wordplay. Fish puns often centre around a few key topics: fins, jaws, names of species, and a few other fish-related topics.

As with all entries on Punpedia, if you’ve got a great pun, you can post it in the comments and one of our curators will add it to this entry. And if you’re looking for visual puns, there’s a collection of visual fish puns towards the end of this entry.

Shark Puns

Sharks! That’s what this Punpedia entry is all about. Shark puns overlap a little with the entries on dolphin puns, beach puns, water puns, and fish puns, so feel free to check out those articles for some related wordplay. Shark puns often centre around a few key topics: fins, jaws, names of species, and a few other shark-related topics.

As with all entries on Punpedia, if you’ve got a great pun, you can post it in the comments and one of our curators will add it to this entry. And if you’re looking for visual puns, there’s a collection of visual shark puns towards the end of this entry.

Shark Puns List

Each item in this list of shark puns is either a simple word-swap (e.g. Something → Somefin) or it may be a general rule from which multiple puns can be made. In the case of general rules, the asterisks sign (*) represents one or more letters.

  • Something → Some fin: As in “There’s some fin about the way he walks” and “Is that a fish, or some fin else?”.
  • Nothing → No fin: As in “No fin is better than swimming with dolphins” and “I’ve got no fin left to give!”.
  • Anything → Any fin: As in “Any fin goes.” and “I never said any fin!”.
  • *thing → *fin: Generalising on the “some fin”, “any fin” and “no fin” examples, we can often replace “thing” with “fin” when it occurs at the end of the word: everyfin, clo-fin (clothing), breafin (breathing), soo-fin (soothing), scafin (scathing), sunbafin’ (sunbathing), sleufin’ (sleuthing), wrifin’ (writhing), blacksmifin’ (blacksmithing), bequeafin’ (bequeathing), frofin’ (frothing), locksmifin’ (locksmithing), badmoufin’ (badmouthing).
  • Thin → Fin: As in “Vanished into fin air.” and “You’re skating on fin ice.”
  • *thin* → *fin*: Some words that contain “thin” can become “fin” puns: airworfiness (airworthiness), freefinkers (freethinkers), newsworfiness (newsworthiness), stealfiness (stealthiness), wealfiness (wealthiness).
  • Think  → Fink: As in “I fink we should stop.”
  • Thin*  → Fin*: If a word begins with “thin”, we can make “fin” puns: finking (thinking), fink (think), finker (thinker), finning (thinning).
  • Fan* → Fin*: “fan” can sometimes be replaced with “fin” at the start of words to create fin puns: fintastic (fantastic), finciful (fanciful), finfare (fanfare), fintasy, findom, finciful.
  • Fine/Fin./Find/Fun → Fin: The word “fin” can be used to replace many small words than have both ‘f’ and ‘n’ like “fun” and “find”. The term “fin” also a French word meaning “finish”, and so is sometimes seen at the end of old films and books.
  • *fin*: If a word contains “fin”, it’s an easy fish pun: affinity, coffin, definitive, definitively, finch, finesse, finishfinished, finnish, finland, infinity, infinitesimal.
  • In* → Fin*: A lovely and shameful pun can be made from any word starting with “in”. Simply replace “in” with “fin”: finformation, finfluence, finvolve, finternational, finvolved, fintroduce, findeed, finvestment, finto, finclude, finteresting, fintellectual, finjury, fintend, finterview, finsurance, finstrument, … Thousand more can be made with the help of a list like this.
  • *fici* → *fishi*: If a word contains “fici” it can often be replaced with “fishi”. Here are some examples: affishionado, artifishial, benefishial, coeffishient, defishiency, defishit, ineffishient, suffishient, ofishial, profishient, superfishial.
  • Issue → Fishue: As in “That’s not the fishue here though.” and “I was fishued a sign for parking without a ticket”.
  • Killer: As in “These jokes are just killer!” and “Oh wow, that was a killer shark pun you just made.”
  • Door salesperson → Dorsals-person: As in “Door-to-dorsals people are really annoying.” and “Does anyone actually buy things from dorsalsmen?”
  • *tail: Sharks have a tail, so if you’re stretching for an extra shark pun, words containing tail like entail, detail, retail and cocktail may just get you over the line.
  • Bubbly: “bubbly” has a “this water is bubbly” sense and a “he has a really bubbly personality” sense.
  • Dive: As in “The stock market took a dive today.” and “I tried to dive for the ball to intercept it.” and “This relationship has really taken a dive lately.”
  • Finland: As in “I head Finland has great shark puns.”
  • Yours → Jaws: As in “I didn’t know it was Jaws!” and “”

  • Chump → Chomp: As in “Yeah he is a bit of a chomp.”
  • May co* → Mako*: A mako sharks are a well known category of sharks. Example sentences: “He makome with us if he wants” and “Let’s makonversation to be polite.” There are thousands of terrible shark puns to be made using this formula. See this list of words starting with “co” to help you make your own.
  • Make a → Mako: As in “I’m trying really hard to mako shark pun here.”
  • Girl → Gill: As in “Our little gill grew up so fast!”
  • *gil* → *gill*: If a word contains the “gill” sound, replacing it the letters “gill” is an easy homographic fish pun: gillt (guilt), gillbert (gilbert), gillotine (guillotine), gilld (guild), gilligan, gillded (gilded). We can also make (somewhat more laboured) gill puns by using words with the “jill” sound: a-gill-ity (agility), fra-gill-ity (fragility).
  • Serration: Shark teeth have evolved to rely on serration to tear manageable chunks from their prey. In the right context this might work as a subtle shark pun.
  • Reef: Words containing a “reef”-like sound can be made into homographic puns by switching in “reef”: greef (greif), breef (brief), breefcase (breifcase), preefabricated (prefabricated), preefer (prefer), reefill, reeflexes, reefunds, reefurbishment, reefreshed, reefuel, shereef (sherif), threefold.
  • Tope: The term “tope” is a verb meaning “to drink alcohol in excess, especially regularly”, and it also refers to a type of small, greyish, slender shark.
  • Requiem: The term “requiem” refers to an act or token of remembrance, especially a Catholic mass held in remembrance of the dead. The term also refers to a large family of sharks (including tiger sharks, blacktip sharks, and many of the species involved in attacks on humans).
  • Bonnethead: A bonnethead is a small, harmless shark in the hammerhead family. It sounds like an insult and could be used if you need one with a shark-themed pun: “Stop being such a bonnet head.”
  • Great white: As in “That’s a great white lie and you know it.” and “Look at that great white cloud!” You may also get away with using “big white” as a more subtle pun.
  • Frenzy: Sharks are known for their tendency for “feeding frenzies” when hunting in shivers (a group of sharks). Slipping “frenzy” in  place of words like these may work as a subtle shark themed pun: hysteria, madness, mania, delirium, feverishness, fever, wildness, agitation, turmoil, tumult, wild, excitement.
  • Cookie-cutter: A cookie-cutter shark is a species that bites chunks or “plugs” of flesh out of larger marine animals. There is a potential for wordplay with the original definition of “cookie-cutter” and the definition that means “template”.
  • What an animal → Water animal: As in “Water animal you’ve become.”
  • *ways → *waves: Words than end in “ways” can be made into bad wave puns: alwaves (always), railwaves (railways), sidewaves, pathwaves, lengthwaves, doorwaves.
  • *cy → *sea: If a word ends in “cy” it’s an easy “sea” pun: polisea, agensea, democrasea, currensea, emergensea, efficiensea, tendensea, frequensea, fansea, constituensea, pregnansea, accurasea, redundansea, bureaucrasea, presidensea, legasea, conspirasea, mersea, privasea, bankruptsea, consistensea, literasea, urgensea, deficiensea, dependency, consultansea, tenacity, isea (icy), secrecy, intimasea. See ocean puns entry for more.

  • Sea*: Most words starting with “sea” are easy sea puns: season, seasonal, seated, searingly, sealants, seam. See ocean puns entry for more.
  • See* → Sea*: If a word starts with “see” it can often be replaced with “sea” to create a simple sea pun: seaminly, seads, seaker, seathe, seap, seak, sean, sea (see). See ocean puns entry for more.
  • Man, eating: As in “Man, eating junk food is the worst.” and “Man, eating your words now, aren’t you?.”
  • My neat → Man-eat: As in “Man-eat puns are too good for you.” and “It’s man-eat-ness that helps me stay organised.”
  • Shock → Shark: As in “I was still shivering from shark.”
  • Thin → Fin: As in “Vanished into fin air.” and “You’re skating on fin ice.”
  • Nurse: The nurse sharks are a well-known family of sharks. Regular usage of “nurse”: “Yes, he’s a registered nurse.”

  • Pup: A young shark is called a “pup“, and the term is often used (in slang) to describe a young person (especially a cheeky boy).
  • Shiver: When sharks travel in groups, they’re called “shivers”. Example sentence: “Shark puns give me the shivers.”
  • Mega load on → Megalodon: A very specific pun about a famous extinct shark species weighing over 80 tonnes. Example: “I’m too busy, my boss has put a megalodon my shoulders this week.”
  • Predator: Sharks are known for being the “predators” of the sea. Used in the right sharky context, this can be subtle wordplay.
  • Pray → Prey: As in “Just hope and prey that no one gets eaten by a shark.”
  • *prah* → *prey*: Words containing the “prah” sound (or similar) can be turned into aboninable “prey” puns: entre-prey-neurial (entrepreneurial), incom-prey-hensible (incomprehensible), misinter-prey-t, dis-prey-portionately, prep-prey-tory, tem-prey-turere-prey-sentation, un-prey-fessional, re-prey-duction.
  • *pri* → *prey*: An easy set of terribly laboured shark puns can be made of words containing “pri”: prey-vatisation (privatisation), prey-mordial (primordial), prey-cing (pricing), prey-de (pride), pro-prey-ietary (proprietary).
  • Basking: Basking sharks are the second largest fish in existence (after the whale shark). The usual definitions of “bask” (“basking in the sun”) can be used as puns in the right context.
  • Busking → Basking: As in “There was basker playing on my street today.”
  • Tiger: This is a play on tiger shark. As in “Easy there tiger!” and “She’s a tiger on the tennis court.”
  • Nas*  → Gnash: Sharks do a lot of gnashing (striking their teeth together) while trying to get their jaws around prey. If a word starts with a “nas” sound (or similar) it may work as a shark pun: gnashty (nasty), gnashtalgic (nostalgic), gnashville, gnash-onalistic (nationalistic), gnashtrils (nostrils), gnasha (nasa).
  • A tacky  → Attacky: Sharks are famous mostly because of their deadly attacks on humans, so the word “attack” is perhaps closely link to “shark” for it to be a shark pun by itself: “That was attacky shark pun.”
