Cheese Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on cheese puns! 🧀 🐭

Cheese is an internationally loved food that can be enjoyed on its own, as a base for recipes or simply as a topping or flavouring. Although it’s celebrated for its tasty qualities, we should be aware that there are many dairy-free replacements we can (and should) use instead so as to not support the dairy industry. If you’re concerned about your calcium intake, don’t be – there are many vegan sources of calcium available.

In this list, we’ve tried to cover cheese ingredients, types of cheese, and popular cheese dishes, so we hope to have you covered no matter what you’re after. Wow your tinder date, ruin family games night and win that pun thread with our cheesy cheese puns list!

If you’re after related puns, we also have cow puns, pizza puns, food puns, milk puns and taco puns.

  • Whey: Whey is the liquid that’s left after milk has been curdled and strained in the cheese-making process. We’re getting a bit technical here, but we’ve included whey-related puns and phrases in this list too!

  • Wasting → Tasting: As in, “Tasting your time” and “Tasting away.”
  • Homage → Fromage: “Paying fromage to…” Note: fromage is French for cheese.
  • Make → Milk: This one’s a bit of a stretch, but can still work! Since cheese is made of milk, we’ve included a milk pun in here too (and here are some dairy-free milks you can try, along with why you should try going dairy-free): “Absence milks the heart grow fonder” and “Milk up your mind” and “Can’t milk head or tail of it” and “Details milk the difference” and “Enough to milk you sick.”
  • Raclette: This is both a type of cheese and a type of cheese dish, so we’ve included it in this list:

    • Camouflage → Cow-moo-flage: As in “We cow-moo-flaged well amongst the shrubs.” and “Put on your cow-moo gear – we’ll need to be sneaky.”

    • Chow → Cow: “Cow down.”
    • Coincidence → Cowincidence: As in “This wasn’t a cowincidence.”
    • *cow*: If a word contains the “cow” sound (or anything vaguely similar), it can obviously be turned into a silly cow pun: cowncil (council), cowntenance (countenance), cownteract (counteract), cownterfeit, cownterbalance, cownterpart, cownterproductive, cownt, cowntess, cowntless, cowardice, coward (or cow-herd), accowntability, accowntants, encowntered, knocowt (knockout), encowntering, scowting, unaccowntable, loocowt (lookout), discownted, scowl, miscowculation.

    • Wane → Wine: “On the wine.”
    • Wonder → Wine-der: As in, “Works wine-ders” and “Gutless wine-der” and “It’s a wine-derful life” and “No small wine-der” and “Wine-ders never cease.”
  • Run it → Rennet: “Did you rennet by them for approval?” Note: rennet is used in the cheese-making industry to curdle milk (which will then form curds to be pressed into cheese). Rennet is a set of enzymes which helps young mammals digest their mother’s mik. We obtain rennet from the stomachs of unweaned calves, which is just one more reason to look at vegan cheese options rather than dairy.
  • Case in → Casein: “Casein point.” Note: casein is a protein found in dairy products.

These next few puns are based around the base ingredients for vegan cheese varieties:

  • Cashew: Cashew is a very popular base for cheese alternatives as it’s very mild, creamy, and goes well with heaps of other ingredients (here are a couple of cashew cheese recipes to try out):
    • Catch you → Cashew: As in, “Careful, you don’t want them to cashew!” and “I’ll cashew later” and “They’ll cashew out” and “I’m gonna cashew!”
    • Cash you → Cashew: As in, “I’ll cashew in.”
    • Shoes → Cashews: As in, “Goody two cashews” and “Kick off your cashews.”
    • Achoo → Cashew (this one is a bit of a stretch, yes, but can work with enough dedication and acting prowess)
  • Soy: The classic old soy cheese, while slightly less exciting than cashew cheese, is still very popular among vegan cheese fans, so we’ve included it here:
    • Say → Soy: As in, “As the soying goes” and “Before you could soy anything” and “Computer soys no” and “Do as I soy, not as I do” and “Does exactly what it soys on the tin” and “Have a soy” and “My final soy” and “I’m hearing what you soy” and “Just soy the word” and “Needless to soy” and “Never soy never” and “Soy a few words” and “Soy goodnight” and “Soy it, don’t spray it” and “Soy what you mean” and “As I was soying” and “If I do soy so myself” and “Soy again?” and “To soy nothing of” and “To soy the least.”
    • So → Soy: As in, “Soy on and soy forth” and “I wouldn’t go soy far as to…” and “How soy?” and “If I do say soy myself” and “Not soy fast!” and “Soy be it” and “Soy long as” and “Soy much for” and “Soy there.”
    • *sey* → *soy*: As in, “An epic odyssoy” and “Hit the bullsoy.”

To finish off, here are some celebrity names changed around to be dangerously cheesy:

  • Paris Hilton → Paris Stilton
  • Beyonce → Brieonce
  • Fetty Wap → Fetta Wap
  • Kim Kardashian → Kim Curdashian
  • Jane Fonda → Jane Fondue
  • Kate Moss → Kate Mozzarella

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.

And finally, here’s a great list of delicious vegan cheese recipes that you can enjoy 🙂

Pizza Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on pizza puns! 🍕 The most common pizza puns directly involve the word “pizza”, and this entry has its fair share of those, but it also includes a bunch of puns about pizza-related topics. The list is fairly short by Punpedia standards, so if you’ve got one that we’re missing, please post it in the comments at the end!

A quick side note before we begin: I feel obligated to remind readers that (most) pizza is generally a terribly unhealthy food. It’s delicious, but not something people should really be putting in their bodies regularly if they don’t want heart disease to kill them at 50. Healthier wholegrain pizzas with plant-based toppings are becoming more and more common at pizzerias. Go easy on the cheese! 🙂

It also includes toast puns and until Punpedia gets big enough to warrant distinct entries for them, this is the entry for baking puns / bakery puns too.
