  • 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”
