Puns for smart kids

A while back Ree from The Pioneer Woman posted these puns for smart kids. I just love this kind of play-on-words. I have a mini “Ewrika! moment every time I get the gist of it.

I like all of them but my favorites are #10 and #14.


1. The roundest knight at King Arthur’s Round Table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.

2. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

3. She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her still.

4. A rubber band pistol was confiscated in an algebra class, because it was a weapon of math disruption.

5. The butcher backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.

6. No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery.

7. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering.

8. A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart.

9. Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.

10. Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

11. A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall. The police are looking into it.

12. Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

13. Two hats were hanging on a hat rack in the hallway. One hat said to the other, “You stay here, I’ll go on a head.”

14. I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

15. A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said, “Keep off the Grass.”

16. A small boy swallowed some coins and was taken to a hospital. When his grandmother telephoned to ask how he was, a nurse said, “No change yet.”

17. A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.

19. The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.

20. The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray is now a seasoned veteran.

21 A backward poet writes inverse.

22. In a democracy, it’s your vote that counts. In feudalism, it’s your count that votes.

23. When cannibals ate a missionary, they got a taste of religion.

24. Don’t join dangerous cults, practice safe sects!

  • Sir Cumference. Christ, that’s an awesome name for a porno star.

  • Speaking of twisted brains, Alexu, I’ll leave it to you to make the introductions.

  • –@Phil: I swear I thought the exact same thing (well, not exactly the porn star name, but the sexual allusion). But I refrained from giving any details of this, thinking you know, maybe I’m the only one who thinks that… Apparently not 😀

  • bahahaaa those are so funny. I’m spamming my Facebook with them right now!

  • -@Alexandra: I’m ashamed to say this, but no 10 escaped me until this morning, when I read your last post. It’s official, dying your hair blonde will dumb you down. It won’t shut me up though ( RIP George Carlin ). 😛

  • Ha! Love these puns I will have to try them out soon. Also Alexandra, please email me when you have a chance @trustyourstyle@gmail.com — i have a question for you. Thanks!
