Pumpkins are pretty hard to ignore. After all, they’re huge, orange, and during the fall, extremely plentiful. You can find them just about everywhere this time of year, from your front porch to your daily latte.
It’s no surprise that pumpkins also crop up in a lot of sayings. Throw in jack o’ lanterns, squash, gourds, and other related concepts, and you’ve got the seeds of some clever wordplay. And by clever, we mean painfully corny.
Just in time for Halloween, we’ve harvested this collection of hilarious and awful pumpkin puns from various sources. For extra groans and giggles, we’ve even carved out a few of our own creations.
