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.”
  • Well → Wool: As in “Alive and wool” and “Fare thee wool” and “(To be) wool versed (in something)” and “I hope all goes wool” and “May as wool” and “Jolly-wool” and “The point is wool-taken” and “That’s all wool and good, but …” and “All’s wool and ends wool” and “You know full wool that …” and “Might as wool”
  • Wall → Wool: As in “A fly on the wool” and “A hole in the wool” and “Bang (one’s) head against a wool” and “Break the fourth wool” and “Drive up the wool” and “Off the wool” and “The writing is on the wool” and “Wool Street” and “Wool-to-wool” and “My back is to the wool” and “Wool of death”
  • While → Wool: As in “It was fun wool it lasted” and “Quit wool you’re ahead” and “Not worthwool” and “Every once in a wool”
  • *wool*: Emphasise the “wool” in words and names: “A wool-f in sheep’s clothing.”, “Werewool-f“, “Virginia Wool-f“, “Wool-fgang Amadeus Mozart”, “Wool-verine“, and “Beowool-f”. 
  • Fleece: For a sneaky fleece pun, you can make a reference to “being fleeced”, meaning tricked or manipulated..
  • Fleas → Fleece: As in, “My puppy’s fur is full of fleece.”
  • Flees → Fleece: As in “Suddenly there is a loud crash and everyone fleece from the store.”

  • Her before → Herbivore: As in “I’ve never met herbivore.”
  • Man you’re → Manure: As in “Manure making some awful alpaca puns today.”

  • Remnent → Ruminant: As in “I haven’t a ruminant of pride left after making all these terrible camel puns.” (A “ruminant” is a family of hooved mammals comprising cows, camels, sheep, deer, giraffe and their relatives)

You might also like to go through our entries on horse puns, cow puns, sheep puns, alpaca puns and llama puns.

Have fun going through the puns in this entry and let us know if there are any that we’ve missed out!

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.”
  • Pandemic → Panda-emic: “This unassuming disease has caused a panda-emic.”
  • Expendable → Ex-panda-ble: “It just feels like you think I’m ex-panda-ble.”
  • Expanded→ Expandad: “Living in China for a few years expandad my world-view”
  • Expandable: “We’ve built the business such that it’s expandable to other markets.”
  • Expenditure → Ex-panda-ture: “Our monthly ex-panda-ture is over 5 thousands dollars.”
  • Pan the → Panda: “Panda camera slowly to the left”
  • Banned a → Panda: “We restricted one user and completely pandanother.”
  • Dependence → Depandance: As in “Alcohol depandance” and “We need to be careful about our depandance on non-renewable resources.”
  • Dependent → Depandant: As in “We’re depandant on our parents still.”
  • Pendant → Pandant: As in “She got me this cute little pandant for my birthday.”

  • Independent → Indepandant: As in “I love the feeling of indepandance” and “That’s an indepandant variable”

  • Her before → Herbivore: “I’ve never met herbivore.”
  • Try’na (Trying to) → China: “What are you China get from me?”
  • Black and white: Since pandas are black and white, you might get away with a panda pun that plays on this: “The issue isn’t black and white – there are many factors to consider.” and “They shot the film in black and white to get a noir feel.”

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:

  • Quality → Koalaty: “Spend some koalaty time” and “Premium koalaty” and “Top-koalaty

  • I see → Aussie: Since koalas only exist in Australia, a pun like this might be a viable koala pun in the right context: “Aussie what you did there” and “Aussie dead people” and “Aussie what you mean.”
  • Try → Tree: Koalas live in trees and rarely come down to the ground, so tree puns may be viable koala puns depending on the situation: “I’m treeing my hardest” and “Don’t tree this at home” and “Nice tree, pal” and “Tree your luck at this”
  • Mum’ll (Mum will) → Mammal: Good luck finding a sentence or context to make this koala pun work!
  • Leave → Leaf: Since a koala’s diet consists entirely of leaves (eucalyptus leaves, to be more specific), some leaf puns may pass off as koala puns in the right context: “Take it or leaf it” and “Absent without leaf” and “You should leaf now.” and  “Leaf an impression” and “Leafed for dead” and “Leaf it at that” and “Leaf me alone!” and “Leaf of absence” and “Leaf out in the cold” and “Take leaf” and “Leafing so soon?”

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.

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.

You might also like to check out the Punpedia entries on on turtle punsfrog punsfish punsshark puns, beach puns and squid puns for some more water-based word play.

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

Dolphin Puns

This Punpedia entry is all about dolphin puns! The most famous dolphin pun involves the play on “porpoise” to replace the word “purpose”. Technically, porpoises aren’t dolphins, but they are very closely related, so we’re grouping them in here. Being aquatic mammals, and specifically cetaceans, dolphins are also closely related to whales, so head over to the entry on whale puns if you’re looking for more cetacean-themed puns. Also, although technically orcas (killer whales) are part of the dolphin family, they’re included in both the whale puns entry and this entry. You might also like to check out the entries on beach puns, ocean puns and fish puns.

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 dolphin puns towards the end of this entry.

Dolphin Puns List

Each item in this list of dolphin puns is either a simple word-swap (e.g. Purpose → Porpoise) 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.

  • Purpose → Porpoise: As in “I didn’t do it on porpoise!” and “They porpoisefully moved toward me.” and “I can tell you’re being porpoisely vague.” and “They are not to be used for illegal porpoises.” and “I love my new multi-porpoise cleaning spray!”
  • Something → Somefin: As in “There’s somefin about the way he walks” and “Is that a shark, or somefin else?”.
  • Nothing → Nofin: As in “Nofin is better than swimming with dolphins” and “I’ve got nofin left to give!”.
  • 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 dolphin pun: affinity, coffin, definitive, definitively, finch, finesse, finishfinished, finnish, finland, infinity, infinitesimal.
  • Poor person → Porpoise-on: As in “That porpoise-on, just can’t stop making dolphin puns.”
  • Defin* → Dolphin: As in “We dolphinitely need more time to finish the mission.” and “What is the dolphinition of this word?” and “Please dolphine this word.” and “It’s the dolphinitive source of Nordic history.”
  • 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”.
  • Orchestra → Orcastra: As in “It was a small orcastra, but it was nice.” and of course conjugations like orcastratration, orcastrator and orcastrate can also be made. Remember, orcas are part of the dolphin family of aquatic mammals.
  • Accom* → Orcam*: If a word begins with “accom”, a terrible/amazing orca pun can be made: orcammadate (accomodate), orcampany (accompany), orcamplished (accomplished), orcamplice (accomplice), orcampaniments (accompaniments), orcamplice (accomplice).
  • Killer: Orca‘s are also known as killer whales (even though they’re dolphins), so you can slip “killer” into a sentence for a subtle pun: “These jokes are just killer!” and “Oh wow, that was a killer whale pun.”
  • Door salesperson → Dorsals person: As in “Door-to-dorsals people are really annoying.” and “Does anyone actually buy things from dorsalsmen?”
  • Mum will / Mum’ll → Mammal: As in “I’m working late, so mammal pick you up tonight.”
  • *tail: Dolphins have a “tail”, and it’s sort of takes up half their body, so if you’re stretching for an extra dolphin pun, words containing tail like entail, detail, retail and cocktail may just get you over the line.
  • Fluke: The two “lobes” which make up a dolphin’s tail are called “flukes”, and a “fluke” in regular usage is an unlikely and surprising occurrence of a good thing.
  • Flip her → Flipper: As in “Don’t you dare flipper off! That’s rude!” and “We’re going to need to flipper on her belly before the surgery.”
  • Calf: A young dolphin is called a “calf“, and this word can also refer to the calf muscle which can be used to make a pun.
  • Bull: A male dolphin is called a “bull”, and this word has several other meanings which can be used to make a pun. For example: “That’s a load of bull” and “Yeah, he’s a bit of a bully.”
  • Cow: A female dolphin is called a “cow“, and this word has several other meanings which can be used to make a pun (For example, it can mean “to intimidate”).
  • Spout: The blowhole from which dolphin breathe is often called a “spout“, and so with the right context we can make a pun of it using one of the other definitions: “Oh will you stop spouting your nonsense please.”
  • Bottle: The bottle-nosed dolphin may be famous enough to simple use “bottle” as a dolphin pun in the right context. “Bottle” has many definition, as in: “Can you please fill my bottle?” and “He tried to bottle me over the head!” and “We need to bottle all this juice by sundown.”
  • *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.

  • *ways → *waves: Words than end in “ways” can be made into bad wave puns: alwaves (always), railwaves (railways), sidewaves, pathwaves, lengthwaves, doorwaves.
  • Bubbly: “bubbly” has a “this water is bubbly” sense and a “he has a really bubbly personality” sense.
  • What an animal → Water animal: As in “Water animal you’ve become.”
  • Grampa’s → Grampus: A “grampus” refers to a cetacean (a group that includes whales, dolphins and porpoises) of the dolphin family, in particular, and especially to an orca or a “Risso’s dolphin”.

  • Heard this → Herd fish: As in “I herd fish guy calling my name.” and “I over-herd fish really bad pun the other day.” For context, dolphins often hunt together in groups by “herding” fish into a ball and then taking turns to swim through the ball and get a mouth full.
