Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

Psst! Thanksgiving is coming up soon, whether you believe it or not. That means it’s time to ensure the food is ready, the guest list is set, and the house is in great shape for the family. Thanksgiving is about food, but it’s also about having fun, and what’s more fun than a good joke? It helps us find things we have in common as we laugh together over a delicious meal. If you need something to make you laugh, these Thanksgiving puns are just what you need.

The funny food puns below have a little bit of everything: they are clever, corny, and make you hungry. You’ll see what I mean. They may not make everyone laugh, but I guarantee that a father who loves to tell dad jokes will be ROFLing.
