If you’re a pun lover like me, or you love a bad joke, here are my 15 favourite writing puns for all you grammar nerds out there.

Credits to Buzzfeed and Pinterest.

The past, the present and the future walked into a bar. It was tense.

Never date an apostrophe. They’re too possessive.

Why did the run-on sentence think it was pregnant? Because its period was late.

But how can you tell the above question is not pregnant? Because it doesn’t have any contractions.

To practice safe text you must always use a comma. And hope you never miss a period.

At the altar: I now pronouns you he and she (or she and she, and he and he).

What’s the difference between a cat and a comma? A cat has claws at the end of its paws, while a comma has a pause at the end of a clause.

Why do words, phrases and punctuation keep ending up in court? To be sentenced.

What do you call a dinosaur with good grammar? A thesaurus.

Why did Shakespeare only write in pen? The pencils would always confuse him. 2B or not 2B?

Why did the editor vomit? She saw a typo and it made her [sic].

Why do writers always feel cold? Because they’re surrounded in drafts.

How do you comfort a writer? Say, “There, they’re, their.”

Every time you make a typo, the errorists win.

The past, the present and the future all went camping. They slept in tense. (I came up with this one myself, #proud)

I hope y’all enjoyed these, and hopefully I got a giggle out of ya. If you’ve got any writer jokes of your own, drop them down in the comments!
