These Clever Halloween Costumes Take Puns To The Next Level ๐Ÿ˜‚

There's nothing better than funny Halloween costumes.


Sure, that character from the obscure anime show you love might be your favorite, and the princess costume you rented may be quick and easy, but it's the funny costumes everyone's going to be talking about at work the next day while trying not to barf on their desk because Halloween was on a weeknight. Those are just the laws of the universe.

And if you really wanna rule Funny Halloween 2018โ„ข, you gotta go punny. Given the ridiculous pun costumes currently ruling Twitter, competition this year is steep! Consider this your first training exercise for 2019. Take notes, because this is how it's done!

First up: Plant Parenthood!

I must admit this stumped me until I read the tweet. But five stars! Another key to a memorable pun costume: Make it a thinker. Also, as an inveterate lazy cheapskate, this combo of dollar store fake plants and what looks like an old backpack simply worn backwards takes first prize in the costume competition that exists solely in my mind.

(Seriously, what does this mean? I have no idea but I bet it's ingenious. Good job NIcole!)

There were tons of other pun costumes that TOOK TWITTER BY STORM:

Some were BOWLED OVER by this one:

But the REALITY was, this was many people's favorite (wink):

The puns even got sort of sexy...

As well as just downright genius:

While others had a certain je ne sais quoi:

And when a figure is as versatile and multi-faceted as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there's no end to the puntastic possibilities:


So there you have it! Now get out there and turn a look that'll make 'em say, "Wait, what? Oh... ๐Ÿ™„"

Happy Halloween!

First relationships are tough. Typically they pop up when you're younger, teenager for most, when you're most certainly not mature enough to handle one. You're young, impressionable, and eager to please, unable to see what's really happening. While this could lead to heartbreak, that can be a good thing.
