You love puns. You may say you don’t, but we know that’s not true. Because everyone loves puns.

And here to show you how much you really like them is U.K.-based artist and illustrator Sophie Corrigan, who creates endlessly charming drawings of animals and who has recently branched into punning.

Corrigan’s work is all-around adorable without words, but adding some eye-roll-inducing puns, and they rise to the level of hilarious.

The puns are silly, of course, but that’s what makes them so perfect. And you have to admit: they’re pretty clever.

Animals are plenty funny all on their own, even when they don’t mean to be, but adding some wordplay? That makes it so much better.

Check out Corrigan’s art if you’re in need of a giggle, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Even if puns aren't your thing, you kind of can't look at this without smiling.

And her art style makes them all the better.

Besides illustrating, Corrigan also likes to create felted wool sculptures and hang out with her pet axolotls and cockatiel.

(If you don’t know what an axolotl is, it’s this.)

Corrigan has created artwork for many large clients, and clothing and items with her work on them can be found at stores like Urban Outfitters.

Her ultimate dream is to illustrate children's books, and we think she'd be fantastic!

Sometimes the puns practically make themselves.

But no matter how easily they come, they're always amusing.

Like, come on. You totally laughed at this.

And if you're not totally pleased by now, you may, in fact, be an inanimate object.

After reading through these animal puns, you might find yourself making up some of your own.

Don't fight it. Just turn to the dark side.

It's pretty clear that life is better with illustrated animal puns.

Besides animal puns, Corrigan also creates illustrations on many other topics, all with her signature cuteness and humor.

There’s a lot more fun, humor, and cuteness on Corrigan’s website and social media, so be sure to check it out when you need a smile.

And since everyone needs a smile from time to time, be sure to SHARE the glory of these puns!
