My 25 New Illustrated Bad Puns That Might Make Your Day


I am a designer based in San Francisco, and I love to doodle during my spare time. I hear many words that amuse me during the day, not sure why, but they are just too funny. Perhaps it's a combination of being easily amused and having English as a second language. In any case, it's a good method to escape our sad pandemic reality and deal with stress.


For example, when my mother mentioned she is doing "intermittent fasting," an image of a person putting a mitten over their head popped into my mind. Then when I heard "thumb drive," I saw an actual human thumb driving a car. Same with "Bluetooth" (my daughter was asking why someone came up with this name?) - in my head, I saw an actual blue tooth transmitting Wi-Fi from a mouth.


I usually write down funny words, and when I have some free time, I grab my iPad and quickly draw it. My goal is to create a new drawing every day, and I have been sharing them on my Instagram.


I really enjoyed drawing this, and I hope you’ll find these amusing too! Here are the links to my previous posts if you missed them (I, II).
