A good comedian is able to use puns and jokes about almost anything that they can think of. More importantly, you need to know that the opportunity can present itself at any point in time, so having some material at the ready is always a great idea. It is always a wise move to have a few puns about different topics at the ready.
Combining nature and humor often results in some hilarious tree puns. But, unlike most jokes, you need to know that many people have a different response to puns. Some like them, some don’t. Keep in mind that there is always going to be someone in the crowd who will groan when you make a pun about trees or anything!
Now, let’s get into it!
“What did the tree do when the bank closed? It started its own branch.”
This is a fun pun to get things going because it’s so obvious. Trees have branches, and banks also have branches. So, what does a tree do when it finds out that the bank branch is closed? It starts one of its own. Obviously, the pun here is too lame and stupid, and that is what makes it so funny.
If you are trying to make the other person laugh by making hilariously bad jokes, this is one of the best ones that you can use. Keep in mind that puns are supposed to be funny, and it’s all about showing some ingenuity. There are just so many things associated with trees that you can make fun of.
“How do trees get online? They just log in.”
What’s the number one resource that humans get from trees? Logs! Wooden logs are generally used for a variety of different reasons. Trees are cut down in logs and the wood is then used for further processing. The pun is applied on the word “log” because “log in” is also used for getting online.
It’s a great pun that can have a positive impact on the room. However, because of just how amazingly stupid this pun is, you should know that there are going to be some people who will have a hard time laughing on this. You won’t have to explain this one to anyone either.
Fun addition: You don’t just have to think about puns about trees in a conversation. There are several turkey puns that you can use, such as: “Why did the turkey cross the road? To prove he wasn’t chicken!”
As hilarious as this is, you should know that there are several other topics that you can make puns about. Here’s one of the most hilarious leaf puns that you can make with your partner during the fall season: “I wood never leaf you.”
If you are a fan of dark humor and don’t have a boundary about the topics that you make jokes about, there are quite a few dark puns and jokes that you can make as well. Here’s one of the dark jokes that you can use: “What’s red and bad for your teeth? A brick!”
“What type of tree fits in your hand? A palm tree.”
Everyone knows about palm trees, those beautiful, shaded trees that tend to grow on sandy beaches and near desert-like areas. However, the palm of your hand is also the part of your body with which you hold things. So, what kind of tree can fit in your hand? Well, in the land of bad puns, it has to be a palm tree!
This is one of the most hilarious puns that you will hear because it is just so stupid. If nothing else, most of the people who listen to this pun are going to laugh at the sheer absurdity of it. However, you have to make sure that you deliver it the right way by keeping a straight face, as that is what makes all the difference. Wait for the other person to laugh before you do!
“Why do trees hate riddles? Because it’s too easy to get stumped!”
When a tree is cut and a small part of it is left above the ground, that exposed part is known as the stump. On the other hand, when a person can’t answer a riddle properly, they are known to be “stumped.” It’s a great pun that you can use if you don’t have anything better.
Obviously, you should know that this one isn’t very innovative and almost anyone can think about this, but if you don’t have a better pun to use in such a situation, this is definitely one that is going to make people laugh a bit.
“What’s a tree’s favorite drink? Root beer!”
Consumed all around the world, root beer is one of the most popular drinks. Trees also have roots under them that they use to maintain balance and to grow. As the roots of a tree expand, the tree is able to grow above the ground as well. So, what happens when you combine these two things together?
You get a hilariously bad pun on your hands. Root beer and trees are easy to combine because, as mentioned in this article earlier, there are quite a few topics that you can make puns on related to trees. This one is just quite funny because it’s so stupid.
“What’s a tree’s favorite dating app? Timber.”
For those who don’t know, Tinder is the world’s most popular dating app. So, you are essentially making a pun on this word by replacing it with “timber.” Timber is a common type of wood that is extracted from trees, which is what makes the pun so hilarious when you say it out loud with a straight face.
“Why did the tree need to take a nap? For rest.”
Get it? Trees are found in a forest, and when you break the word and separate it, you get “for rest.” Most people lie down and take naps because they want to rest, and the same thing can be applied to trees. If you were in a contest for the worst puns, you are probably going to win with this one!
“Why was the tree stumped? It couldn’t get to the root of the problem.”
Laughable and terrible, that’s what this pun is. We have already talked about how stumped is commonly fun when used with tree puns, and when you add the root in this pun, it just makes a great deal of sense. Again, this is a fairly common one, but when you deliver it with the right pauses, you are bound to get a few laughs from your audience.
There are hundreds of other puns that you can make but you have to be quite mindful of your audience. It’s important to know when to stop, because puns are generally all about gauging the room and then saying one when you know that people are going to be receptive and will actually respond to it.
