Easter Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on Easter puns! 🥚🌱🐥🐰

Easter is celebrated internationally and has changed over time in meaning and symbolism. While it’s generally a much-enjoyed holiday, it can be controversial in various aspects. Some disagree with the strong religious roots of the holiday, while others view it as a commercial sellout due to the amount that people will spend on gifts and chocolate to celebrate. Others will also criticise the types of gifts that are bought (for example, live chickens and rabbits, with many of these unwanted pets being returned to overflowing animal shelters later). While it does have its problems, many people today enjoy Easter simply as a time to relax and have quality time with friends and family.

However you think of Easter, let us help you celebrate with our terribly punny Easter Puns list! Whether you’re here for a bad pickup line (not recommended) or a corny joke for an events page or invite, we hope you find this list useful.

If you’re after related puns, we also have milk puns, chocolate puns, cow puns and candy puns.

Please note that while Easter has a strong religious history, Punpedia is a non-religious site and won’t be including any puns that obviously cater to religion. We also love animals and encourage people to look at the many non-dairy chocolate options available – we shouldn’t just be wary of the effect of chocolate on our health, but also of the industries producing it.

Note: if you’d like further information about the dairy industry or avoiding dairy in your diet and lifestyle, the documentary Dominion is a great place to start. For further information on other animal industries and support in starting your own vegan lifestyle, Earthling Ed’s videos are a great source of information, as are the vegan and animal rights subreddits. Vegan chocolate options are also just a quick google away (and you’ll find lots of “accidentally” vegan chocolate in any grocery store). There are also dairy-free alternatives to some of the most common/popular chocolate bars, and there are plenty of dairy-free Easter eggs and goodies available too.

Chocolate Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on chocolate puns! 🍫 🐰 🍬 ❤

Chocolate is an internationally loved treat that comes in many forms (bar, truffle, sauce, syrup, chips, pastilles), flavours (strawberry, caramel, mint, etc) and types (milk, dark, white and ruby). As well as enjoying it on its own, we use it as a flavouring for biscuits, breads, and other desserts (like ice cream) and in pastries. We even have a couple of holidays where chocolate is a main feature – Easter and Valentine’s day. It’s everywhere! So help spread the love with our list of chocolate puns.

Unfortunately, the dairy industry that chocolate relies on is not so lovable – it’s a system that profits from abuse and and neglect, with the suffering always ending in death. It’s an industry that we don’t need to participate in, are there are plenty of  dairy-free chocolates that we can enjoy instead (and lots of recipes to try!).

In this list, we’ve tried to include chocolate flavours, shapes, types and related words (like “melt”) as well as the more popular chocolate bar names, brands and manufacturers. So no matter what you’re here for – whether it’s a sweet one-liner, saucy hashtag or a bitterly punny comeback, we hope to have you covered here.

If you’re after related puns, we also have milk puns, coffee puns, ice cream puns, cow puns, candy puns, nut puns and cake puns. We’ve also got a Valentine’s Day pun list and an Easter list!

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).
