Torment Your Friends And Family With These Brilliantly Terrible Puns

We know how much you love puns. That’s why we’re back with even more.

After all, since everyone loves puns, it’s no secret that people all over the world are getting punny, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

If you’re having a gloomy week, check these out. You may just find yourself giggling at your desk — and reciting them to your family, who will of course be grateful to know them.

Last time, we looked at the groaningly hilarious artwork of Sophie Corrigan, and this time, we’re looking at a stateside artist named Monika, who runs the Tumblr blog Pundemonium, which, as you can guess, is full of puns.

So take a moment from the drudgery of the day and let these simple, silly puns make you smile.

And we don’t care how grouchy you are — they will make you smile. Even if it’s kind of one of those pained smiles.

Monika delights in using animals to create her puns, which can simply take the form of visual gags, or as silly jokes.

Of course, animals aren't always necessary, so long as there's some play on words to be had.

Sometimes you get a play on two words in one brilliant pun.

You can see more of Monika’s artwork on Tumblr, as well as on deviantArt, where she shows us her skills extend beyond puns, too!
