Bunny Puns

Bunny Puns List

  • Rabbit: There are a few phrases/idioms that involve the word “rabbit” and that could therefore be used as rabbit puns in the right context: “(To) go down the rabbit hole” and “At it like rabbits” and “Breed like rabbits” and “Rabbit food (referring to vegetables)” and “Pull the rabbit out of the hat” and “The rabbit died (referring to someone being pregnant)”

  • *pet*: If a word contains the “pet” sound, it may work as a silly pet pun: competitive, competitor, petri dish, parapet, petrochemical, petrol, petticoat, pipet (pipette), repetitive.

  • Angry → Angora: As in “I’m so angora at you!”
  • Lop-sided: There are a few well known “lop” rabbit breeds (breeds with floppy ears), and so the use of the word “lop-sided” (meaning “uneven”/”off-centre”) might constitute a subtle bunny pun.

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 very → Ivory: As in “Ivory much like you”
  • Everyone/Everybody → Ivoryone/Ivorybody: As in “Ivoryone and their dog” and “She has a good word for ivorybody
  • Everything → Ivorything: As in “Drop ivorything” and “Money isn’t ivorything” and “Now I’ve seen ivorything” and “Ivorything under the sun”
  • 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”
  • Got an elephant pun we don’t? Please share it in the comments below! 🙂

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:

Koala Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on koala puns! 🐨 This entry starts with some koala-specific puns and also has some general bear puns which should pass off as koala puns in the right context. Enjoy!

Koala 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 koala 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 koala puns:

  • Mum’ll (Mum will) → Mammal: Good luck finding a sentence or context to make this koala pun work!

  • Sow: A “sow” (the “ow” is pronounced like the “ou” in “ouch”) is a female pig. To “sow” (pronounced like “so”) is to plant seeds in the soil.

  • Babe: The film “Babe” is likely famous enough that the use of the word (e.g. as a term of endearment for one’s partner, or in reference to an attractive person) will probably pass off as a pig pun.
