Alpaca Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on alpaca puns! 🌱🐪🌿

Please note that while alpacas are visually similar to llamas, linguistically they are very different and so the two have their own separate entries. You might also like to have a look at our llama pun entry. If you’re interested in other similar mammals, have a look at our entries on goat puns, horse puns, and camel puns.

We hope you have fun looking through all of our alpaca-related wordplay!

Alpaca 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 alpacas that we’re missing, please let us know in the comments at the end of this page! Without further ado, here’s our list of alpaca puns:

  • *-al → *-alpaca: Make some cheekily obvious puns simply by adding “paca” to any word ending in “al” or “ale” (making sure that the pronunciation suits) –  “can-alpaca” (as in canal + alpaca), “chaparr-alpaca” (chaparral: a type of plant), “chor-alpaca” (as in “chorale”, a type of choir), “corr-alpaca” (corral – to herd), “mor-alpaca” (as in “morale” – “moral” doesn’t quite have a suitable rhythm for this), “Pasc-alpaca” (Pascal – French polymath and a unit of pressure), “roy-alpaca” (as in “royale” – “royal” doesn’t have as suitable a rhythm), “sh-alpalca” (as in, “I shall!”)
  • Apocalypse → Alpaca-lypse: As in, “Alpaca-lypse Now: (the movie), and “The Four Horsemen of the Alpaca-lypse“.
  • Abaca → Al-baca: Abacas are a type of banana, and very conveniently rhymes with alpaca. Make a fruity pun by being oddly specific about your bananas: “I need some al-bacas from the store!”
  • I’ll pack a → Alpaca: As in, “Alpaca bag!” (I’ll pack a bag)
  • Jury → Sury: Suri is a type of alpaca. Make a cheesy alpaca pun by blending it with the word jury: “The sury is out.” Also works for other phrases using jury – like “Judge, sury and executioner”
  • Missouri → Missuri: As in, “You promised that we would go to Missuri.”
  • Sure he → Su-ri: As in, “Make su-ri doesn’t eat too many bananas.”
  • Korea → Cria: The term for a baby alpaca is a “cria”, which just so happens to rhyme almost perfectly with Korea. Switch the words around for a fun alpaca pun. 
  • *ria → *cria: You can use cria in other lame alpaca puns by adding it to the end of words that end in “ria”. Watch out for rhythm and pronunciation when making these up. Here are some for you: “Euphocria” (as in “euphoria”), “dysphocria” (from “dysphoria”), “allecria” (as in “allegria” – the Italian word for joy), “pizzecria” (from “pizzeria”), “bactecria” (as in “bacteria”), “Santecria” (as in “Santeria”, an Afro-American religion)
  • Embrace → H-embrace: Female alpacas are known as hembra, which fits in quite nicely to the word “embrace” like so: “My hamster routinely rejects my h-embrace.” 
  • *ember → *hembra: You can make some great alpaca puns by replacing the end of some months with “hembra”, like “Dec-hembra” and “Novhembra”.
  • Remember → Remhembra: As in, “One to remhembra.” Also works for other forms of remember, like “remhembrance” (remembrance) and “remhembra-ed” (as in remembered).
  • Nacho → Macho: Male alpacas are known as machos. Make some cheesy puns like so: “Please get me some machos”. You can also make a pun-ception (a pun within a pun, for those who haven’t seen Inception) by replacing words that rhyme with “nacho”, like “This is macho (nacho = not your) hat. Go away now.” You can also use the phrase “Macho man” in the right context. 
  • Chorizo → Chuarizo: A huarizo is a cross between a llama and an alpaca. Make some lame alpaca puns like so: “Wow, these vegan chuarizos are amazing.”
  • Pro → Peru: As in “A liberal, Peru-science atheist.”
  • *pro/pru* → *peru*: You can slip “Peru” into words that have the “pro” or “pru” sound in them. There are too many to list here, but I’ve provided quite a few to get you going. Don’t forget that for each word provided, there are other forms of the word (past, present, future tense, plurals) that will work as well: “Apperuve” (approve), “Apperuving” (approving), “Bulletperuf” (bulletproof), “Disperuven” (disproven), “Fireperuf” (fireproof), “Foolperuf” (foolproof), “Imperuv” (improve), “Imperudence” (imprudence), “Perucedures” (procedures), “Peruvable“, (provable), “Perude“, (prude), “Sperucing” (sprucing), “Unimperuved” (unimproved), “Waterperuf” (waterproof) and “Weatherperuf” (weatherproof).
  • Spit: Alpacas use spitting as a way to express generally negative feelings, and to warn others off. Use these spit-related phrases to make some great alpaca puns: “Spit and polish”, “spit and sawdust”, “spit blood”, “to spit in the eye of”, “he spit the dummy” (a temper tantrum), “spitting image” (an extremely close likeness), “spitting with rain”, “within spitting distance”, and finally, “don’t spit into the wind” (’cause it might blow it right back into your face).
  • Split → Spit: As in “Make like a banana and spit” and “Fifty-fifty spit” and “Spit hairs” and “Spit second” and “Spit up (with someone)” and “Lickety-spit” and “Spit your sides (laughing)”
  • Cud: In the right context, you could make an alpaca pun using the phrase “chewing the cud, which means to chat aimlessly.
  • Could → Cud: As in “Cud you stop it please?” and “As fast as her legs cud carry her” and “I cud do it in my sleep.” Also works for “couldn’t” – as in, “I cudn’t see what the big deal was.”
  • Cuddle → Cud-dle: Simply put the word “cud” into “cuddle”, as in “let’s cud-dle!”
  • Heard → Herd: As in “I overherd them speaking about …” and “The last I herd, …” and “You herd it here first.” and “You could have herd a pin drop.” and “Stop me if you’ve herd this one”
  • Hay: Since a large part of alpacas’ diet is hay, you can make some alpaca puns using these hay-related phrases: “Go haywire”, “Time to hit the hay, “Like looking for a needle in a haystack”,  “Make hay” (an idiom which advises to take advantage of opportunities), “Make hay while the sun shines” (to act while you can, or while a situation is still in your favour), and “To roll in the hay.  
  • Hey → Hay: As in “Hay, what’s up?” and “Hay there, friend.”
  • Go to sleep → Hit the hay: As in “It’s late. I better hit the hay.”
  • Grass: Here are some grass-related phrases to help you with your corny wordplay: “As exciting as watching grass grow”, “Don’t walk on the grass, “grass roots” (a term for organised local movements; usually social or political),  “a snake in the grass” (referring to a hidden enemy), “the grass is greener on the other side”,  and my personal favourite, “your arse/ass is grass!”
  • Field: “I’m an expert in my field.”
  • Passed/Past your → Pasture: As in “It’s just pasture house on the left.” and “I pasture stall at the fair today but you weren’t there.” and “It’s pasture bedtime.”
  • Wool: To start us off, here are some phrases containing the word “wool”, which you can use to make your own alpaca puns in the right situation: “Baa baa black sheep, have you any wool?” and “Dyed in the wool” (which refers to someone who is very steadfast and set in their ways), “pull the wool over someone’s eyes”, and “woolly thinking”. 
  • Will → Wool: As in “Against my wool” and “Accidents wool happen” and “Time wool tell” and “Every dog wool have its day” and “Heads wool roll” and “Love wool find a way” and “My grandmother left it for me in her wool” and “There wool be hell to pay!” and “I wool stop at nothing” and “It wool be the death of me” and “Whatever wool be, wool be.”
