Bunny Puns List

  • Rabbit: There are a few phrases/idioms that involve the word “rabbit” and that could therefore be used as rabbit puns in the right context: “(To) go down the rabbit hole” and “At it like rabbits” and “Breed like rabbits” and “Rabbit food (referring to vegetables)” and “Pull the rabbit out of the hat” and “The rabbit died (referring to someone being pregnant)”
  • Hop: There are a few phrases/idioms than involve the word “hop” and thus might be used as bunny puns: “A hop, skip and a jump” and “Hopping mad” and “Full of hops” and “Hop to it!”
  • *op* → *-hop-*: If a word contains the “op” sound, we can make a silly rabbit pun by turning it into “hop”, for example: co-hop-eration (cooperation), ad-hop-tion (adoption), p-hop-ulation (population), helic-hop-ters (helicopters), dr-hop-lets (droplets), eavesdr-hopping, impr-hop-erly (improperly), hoperational (operational), hoperator (operator), hoppertunistic (oppertunistic), monhopoly, lollip-hop, photoc-hop-ier (photocopier), p-hop-ularity, hoptimism, hoptimal, hoptimistic, hopulence (opulence), hoptional (optional), p-hopcorn (popcorn), prhopaganda, prhoposition, unp-hop-ular.

  • *pet*: If a word contains the “pet” sound, it may work as a silly pet pun: competitive, competitor, petri dish, parapet, petrochemical, petrol, petticoat, pipet (pipette), repetitive.

  • Angry → Angora: As in “I’m so angora at you!”
  • Lop-sided: There are a few well known “lop” rabbit breeds (breeds with floppy ears), and so the use of the word “lop-sided” (meaning “uneven”/”off-centre”) might constitute a subtle bunny pun.
  • East or → Easter: As in “North, south, easter west.”
