Plant Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on plant puns! 🌸🌳🌺🌿🌼

There are so many different types of plants for us to make puns from – fruits, vegetables, trees, flowers, herbs and more! We’ve split this list up into two main sections – words that are generally to do with plants (like twig, rain or flora), and small lists of specific flowers, trees and herbs.

We haven’t gone into too much detail with specific plants since this is more of a general plant list and we have more specialised entries of cactus puns, flower puns, leaf puns and tree puns, with others on the way too!

Balloon Puns

Welcome to the Punpedia entry on balloon puns! 🎈💨

There are different types of balloons (helium, air and water, amongst others) that are used in different fields for different purposes (medical, decorative and travel). We hope to have covered these varied categories with our balloon pun list so that no matter your circumstance, you find the perfect pun for your needs.

While this list is as comprehensive as possible, it is specific to balloons. If you’re after related puns, we have a list on party puns and birthday puns.

Balloon 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 balloons that we’re missing, please let us know in the comments at the end of this page! Without further ado, here’s our list of balloon puns:

  • Blue → Balloon: This one can be a bit of a stretch, but they do sound similar enough for it to work: “Between the devil and the deep balloon sea” and “Black and balloon” and “Once in a balloon moon” and “Til you’re balloon in the face” and “Balloon screen of death” and “A bolt from the balloon.”
  • Gas: Since balloons are filled with gas, we have some gas-related puns to double as balloon puns:
