36 Sheep Puns That Are Perfect for Ewe

Ewe herd it here first: These sheep puns wool make you baaahaha.

You may think sheep aren’t the brightest critters, but you’ve been fleeced: Sheep can remember individual faces (sheep and human) for at least ten years, recognize facial expressions like smiles and frowns, and form lifelong supportive friendships. There’s more to sheep than meets the eye, and they’re surprisingly funny, too. That’s right, sheep can really put together a pun or two. You may already be familiar with farmyard jesters in the form of chicken puns, or enjoyed pasture pranksters and their many cow jokes, but the fact is that sheep puns are woolly hilarious too. It’s true that bear puns sometimes need some koala-frication, but sheep jokes are for all the family, from lamb to ewe. Don’t get your wool in a twist, just chew your cud and enjoy the shear puntastic brilliance of this herd of laughs.
