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.”

  • 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.”
  • In danger → Endangered: Though it’s not really something to joke about, the Giant panda was once endangered (in 2016 it was downgraded to “vulnerable”). You might slip in the word “endangered” wherever you can (e.g. in place of “in danger” or similar) to make a cheeky panda pun.
