If you hear the sound of groans around Halloween, it could be the spirits of the dead rising to haunt the living on All Hallows Eve. Alternatively, it could be people reacting to the groan-inducing puns that are popular at this time of year.
People love making puns about vampires, witches, mummies, pumpkins, candy, and all the other things associated with this macabre holiday. Heck, people even like to dress up as puns (“cereal killer” and “taco belle” are a couple favorites). Yep, when Halloween draws near, kooky spooky wordplay is about as commonplace as skeleton props and cheap plastic tombstones.
When it comes to Halloween puns, the possibilities are practically endless. However, we’ve limited the following list to the best and most groan-worthy. You might call them the scream of the crop.
