Thanksgiving is an American holiday that passes pretty much all the markers of a great day in the United States. It's a day off work and school (check), it's spent with loved ones (check), and it's pretty focused on delicious food (check). There's nothing like enjoying sweet potato casserole, cozying up on the couch, playing games with the fam, and simply relaxing. It's moments like those when you know it’s time to snap a pic and pair it with an Instagrammable Thanksgiving pun to show everyone what an awesome day you’re having.

Puns can be the perfect amount of corniness; they’re so bad, yet so good — and may call for an “oh-my-gosh-why-would-you-even” exclamation. At least in the case of captions, a pun can instantly put a smile on someone’s face or make them laugh out loud. Your cleverness may rake in a ton of likes and comments. (I'm not saying posting a picture on the 'Gram is all about the likes, but they don't hurt, either.)

So after you've enjoyed that delicious plate of mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, beans, and had your big slice of pumpkin pie, listen up. These 41 egg-cellent puns are gathered in one place so you can choose one and post on social media with ease.
