30 Monkey Puns That Are 'Ape-solutely' Hilarious

These monkey puns are so ape-solutely funny. They are perfect to share when monkeying around with your prime mates.

Let's face it: Monkeys are some of the funniest mammals in the animal kingdom. They make silly expressions, have mischievous personalities, and come up with the funniest noises. Monkeys are so ape-solutely adorable, it's no wonder that these hilarious primates are the subject of so many funny animal puns and iconic pop culture moments. Some celebrities, like Elvis Presley, have even kept one of these two-legged jokesters as pets. Of course, owning a monkey is not for the faint of heart and is actually illegal in many states.

With that in mind, most of us have to settle for watching these joyful, carefree creatures as they create monkey business in books, television, and movies. Monkeys are always up to something when they guest star on our favorite TV shows (we're looking at you, Marcel!) and it's more than just good acting. Their personality truly is the that of a little kid who just wants to have fun. Granted, sometimes, their inquisitive nature gets them into trouble—but from the outside looking in, it's pretty darn funny. Whether it's the cheeky baby chimpanzee or the oh-so-fuzzy gibbon, these funny primates are just as amusing as their punny wordplays. So, let's go ahead and start monkeying around with the best monkey puns!
