If You Understand These Puns, Congrats! You Are The Father!

Orange you glad I said it?

Puns are here, there, and everywhere. It’ll take one person (usually a dad) to point out the obviousness behind any pun. No matter how ridiculous or cheesy they sound, we secretly love at least one pun that we’ve heard before. They usually come with a reaction that will make you grin, or maybe, it could be an eye roller like treating AA batteries like a very serious meeting for certain people. With these particular puns, you’ll either love them or hate them altogether.

TRYangles Are Cool Too

Ugh, a math pun in a fortune cookie. As clever as this is, it’s rather cheesy. You would never expect to see a pun inside of the popular Chinese treat, but really, how is a fortune suppose to be meaningful? Sometimes, I wish you would get one that says “You won $1 million”.

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

Shingles feel the heat too okay! Not just the basketball team from Miami, but every single shingle. It’s billboards like this that should make the average person embrace clever advertisement. It’s a form of puns that might be cheesy, but this company played this off very nicely.

Peter, You Know Who

Come on, man, you should have an idea what this is. I won’t say anything because of the name Peter inside the cooking necessity. I’ll leave you with a hint, he refuses to grow up.


So, how was your day? Well, based on this piece of paper, this sums it up altogether. This person probably had a bad case of the Monday blues. At least it saves them the time and energy of actually spilling the beans, especially during the slowest day of the work week.

If Dad Was Tripping

Dads are the kings of puns. Clearly, this father is “tripping” on acid. Long ago are the days of this father listening to the Beatles psychedelic tunes, so he has to do it in the lab. It’s all fun though, it’s not like he’s going to fall over and have a trip and a half on the floor.

Detroit Croissant City

Rock on! That’s such a great way to embrace a love for France and your parent’s favorite band, Kiss. This is extremely corny, but this is pure gold and quite the Halloween costume.

Gnarly Tattoo

Must have been a pain in the butt to get this tattoo. Better yet, this girl has more courage than I do since she got ink on her skin. But, you shouldn’t have to envy her. The tattoo she got is really weird and out of the ordinary, although she might be trying to start a new trend.

Ain’t Nobody Got Thyme For That

Talk about seasonings changing like no tomorrow. With so many herbs, there is so little thyme to buy more of this. Whoever bought this should buy another one for a good reason. Maybe someone else could improve your thyme management while shopping for groceries.

If You Can Dodge A Wrench, You Can Dodge A Ball

If you’ve seen the movie Dodgeball, you’ll get the reference. In fact, looking at this will instantly make you think about the movie. All that’s missing is Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller.

Sherlock Has A Cousin

It turns out that Surelock will protect your home while his cousin solves crimes. Imagine if they were a three-man group along with Dr. John Watson? That would make such an interesting movie to watch. Although, Sherlock’s cousin would be the one who makes sure no one’s homes are broken into.

AA Meeting

As crude as this looks, that’s rather dark and unique. They probably joined together to see who’s going to be the next pair of batteries to be used for the TV remote. Either way, you have to find this a little interesting that Kirkland is even in the battery game. What don’t they make?

Guess The Actor

Here’s a hint, “I’m Batman!”. If that’s not enough with the cross and bale, it’s Christian Bale. It’s things like this that should help you have an understanding of what puns are all about.

Just ahead, one person shows off their ‘Psycho Killer’ by the Talking Heads with boxes of cereal.

Pumpkin Pi

It’s pi in a pumpkin! Remember when your math teacher drilled this crap into our heads? Then, we asked ourselves if this was going to be a benefit in our daily lives. Well, here we are now, with a way to use pi in the form of a pumpkin in time for Halloween.

3D Reality

3D printing is all the rage right now. People are making such amazing creations and we’ve seen things like homes and even food being 3d printed. Ask around… I mean, who even has a conventional printer anymore? 3D printing is the future, but give it to this guy for throwing it back to 1999.

Psycho Killer

This man is showing off what it means to be apart of a balanced breakfast. Not only that, but he’s providing Talking Heads fans with a simple reminder of one of their best singles, Psycho Killer.

Nice Pair You Got There

I dare somebody to walk around wearing these for a day. The challenge? They have to make sure a flock of birds won’t attack them. If they survive, give that person $100 and a case of beer. If they lose, just watch from a distance and laugh at your friend being attacked by birds.

Barney Stinson’s Favorite

Man, Barney Stinson would be over the moon. It’s rather funny how Stinson himself never did something like this on How I Met Your Mother. Either way, this is one awesome tribute to the man behind the Brobible. Hopefully, no one is lactose for the second part of the pun.

Ice Ice Baby

There is too much vanilla and ice in this. The baby is the best part about it since it’s a reference to the hit song from 1990. You would expect this to be a baby sitting in a tube of ice wearing layers of clothing. But, we can settle for this cute pun for now.

Pi-rats Of The Caribbean

That is one fine line between a numerator and a denominator. Meanwhile, only a fraction of people, mostly math teachers, will have an understanding of this joke. It’s smart, genius and a great way to educate your students.

A Genre Of Music

Punk rock rules! Whoever did this clearly has a great sense of using puns. It’s one of the easiest ones on here and we saved it for the end. Puns are a hit or miss with people, but the simplest ones like this should be a sign that puns can be fun for everyone.

Marry This Man

Michael is setting too high of a bar for any of us to reach. Dating can be hard enough, but what chance do any of us have when the Michael’s of the world have this type of charm?

This joke could have easily been a lemon, but Michael’s smile really sold it.

Just A Tad Predictable

Or is it tide predictable? Honestly, there’s nothing more frustrating then when you’re shopping and someone’s messed with the products to the point where you have no idea where anything is.

It’s a good thing Tide is so recognizable. Tide is love. Tide is life.

When Your Midlife Crisis Hits

There comes the point in a person’s life when they hit their midlife crisis and start buying unnecessary stuff to recapture their youth.

It usually comes around the time when your body finally gives up on you, your waistband expands, and your innie becomes an Audi.

At Least The Dog’s Not Out

Life is hard on social media when you’re a dad. Either you’re posting inappropriate comments on your daughter’s friends prom pictures, or you’re making terrible dad jokes on every picture your child uploads.

There really is no in-between, which is why you should probably keep your interactions to strictly ‘Happy Birthday’ messages.

Best Way To Never Be Invited Over Again

For anyone who has ever clogged the toilet at a friends house, there really is no greater fear.

You’re in an unfamiliar environment, and these people aren’t your family, so there’s no way to simply laugh it off. The only logical decision is to cut yourself off from this person immediately and start a new life.

I Feel She’s Heard This One Before

If TInder has taught us anything (and it hasn’t) it’s that people will do anything possible to use your name in some kind of clever wordplay.

If your name is Eve, prepare for some sort of apple innuendo. If you’re Justin, get ready for everyone to be ‘Justin’ time to meet you. It’s honestly the worst.

And I’m Still Being Paid Minimum Wage

It’s always good to see those hardworking people in your profession finally getting the respect they deserve.

This guy put in those long hours in the field, and while he probably felt underappreciated, this supermarket rewarded his efforts. He’s no gone corporate and his 401K is in fantastic shape.

Just Leave A Note In Here

Few things come together as perfectly as this bit of clever wordplay. The words just leap off the tongue, and hopefully, this box is located at a music hall.

Every workplace needs a good suggestion box to ensure that passive-aggressive comments can be filed away anonymously, and this place really nailed it.


Plenty of us have a few secrets we don’t plan on sharing with anyone, but it’s hard to literally take those secrets and pack them away.

This person stumbled upon all the secrets his wife was hiding from him, and now he has to start questioning every facet of their relationship. This is why I just go au naturel.

You Can Spend An Entirely Life Dreaming For This Moment

When you work in the news, the headline is the most important part of the story. If you don’t catch the audience’s attention, it doesn’t really matter what else happens.

Whoever was working the prompter this day clearly saw their chance and took it, and I’m here for them.

And I’m Still Single

You know that your life is in shambles when you get jealous of a toilet having a better love life than you.

In an age where every social media feed is flooded with engagement, weddings, babies, and divorces, it’s good to know that literally anyone can make it in this world, and so can you!

When You Like Spicy Food A Little On The Bland Side

Thai food isn’t for everyone. It can be incredibly spicy, and if you can’t handle spice, it doesn’t exactly taste great with milk.

This guy still wanted to fit in with his trendy coworkers, so he did his best to buy into the Thai food trend. It’s an expensive diet either way.

The First Thing You Look For In Healthcare Is A Good Sense Of Humor

We tend to treat our pets like they’re members of the family, but how many doctors would you trust when their marketing campaign is full of puns?

This might be a great way to get a few more eyeballs on your business, but if the deciding factor is puns vs no puns, you need to sort out your priorities.

Hello… Hello…

There are a few factors that go into purchasing a car. Sometimes it’s the cost of gas. Sometimes it’s the mileage. And sometimes, it’s the fact that you can make a simple joke that makes you smile each and every day.

This dad will never lose his car in a parking lot ever again, because no one is brave enough to drive with this joke on the back of their car.

A Pun With A Purpose

While most puns are used to get an easy laugh and an overbearing eyeroll, this person used the power of the pun to make a point.

We waste tons of nonrenewable resources each and every day, and it’s destroying our planet. It’s time to look towards the windmills people!

John Wooden Would Be Proud

While clever wordplay may not sell in the world of healthcare, it’s an absolute must when it comes to general labor.

You’re not going to drive any business if your van says “Frank’s Hauling Wood.” Ok, maybe bad example, but you get the idea.

His Face Says It All

If you’ve ever filed a TPS report, you know how difficult it can be to get through a Monday. The last thing you need it Tina from accounting mentioning that you may have a case of the Mondays.

We get it Tina, but it’s more about the fact that you’re trying to get us to buy your daughter’s girl scout cookies, not the actual day of the week.

Classic Caesar

I think we can all agree that the best way to recognize those leaders that came before us is to name our most delicious sauces after them.

However, not everyone loves caesar dressing, and one person took matters into their own hands to recreate an iconic moment in history.

Just A Little Sprinkle

I don’t blame whoever made this sign. I mean, do we even have spring anymore?

It feels like winter lasts 572 days before we get maybe a long weekend’s worth of spring. Then it’s summer for a couple months before we’re back in our snow pants.

I’m Sold

Honestly, you had me at stool sample. When all you do is sell furniture, you have to go to great lengths to get your name out there.

With our culture being so focused on living a healthy and active lifestyle, this company was able to take advantage of the over 40 crowd who have disposable income and are actively checking their stools.
