Egg Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on egg puns! 🥚🐣🐔

Eggs are a wildly popular food, with the US alone producing over 105 billion eggs in 2017. They’re celebrated for their cultural and religious significance (as a symbol for birth and new beginnings, especially during Easter) and are loved for their culinary versatility, appearing not only in savory dishes but also sweets like cakes and custard.

Unfortunately, the egg industry is nothing to be celebrated, as it’s an industry based on a system of abuse, neglect and murder. Luckily, we don’t have to support this as there are many substitutes that we can use instead of eggs – if you’re after protein, there are plenty of vegan sources of protein. If you’re wanting to bake, there are vegan egg replacements too. If you want chocolate eggs for Easter, you’re covered there too. Along with there being an abundance of choice on the internet, you’re guaranteed to find something at your local grocery store.

Whether you came here looking for a silly joke for a pun thread or a clever Instagram hashtag, we hope you enjoy this list and leave with the right pun for your needs (and a better understanding of the egg industry).

Turkey Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on turkey puns! 🦃 ⛅

While turkeys are seasonally popular due to holiday demand, they’re loved all year round at Punpedia. Whether you’re looking for a specific pun for your Thanksgiving celebrations, attempting to contribute to (or win!) a pun thread, or trying to make some really terrible pick-up lines, we hope this list has what you need.

Note: Punpedia never jokes about killing or hurting animals, and so you won’t find any puns about slaughtering, plucking, debeaking, battery cages, or anything like that. Only happy puns that are friendly to our turkey pals 🙂 Enjoy!
