Halloween Puns and Memes: Pumpkin, Costume, Funny

Discover why our ghoulish Halloween puns inspire the fun elements of this holiday. With a skeleton crew, we looked at everything from bats to witches, ghosts to pumpkins, and all the other things associated with this macabre holiday, to come up with these play-on-words possibilities.

Was it a witch hunt? Well, yes, maybe it was. Will some of these selections drive you batty? Maybe. But we hope you enjoy them all.

So, if you hear the sound of croaking and groans during the Halloween season, it could be the living dead…or it very much could be people reacting to these puns!

You might as well call them the scream of the crop. (Although some claim Halloween puns are so corny.)
