95 fall puns to spice up your autumn

Some seriously unbe-leaf-able jokes about apples, pumpkins and other seasonal staples ahead.

It's the season of pumpkin spice, and we're not afraid to say that each and every September, we fall just a bit more in love with autumn.

Catch our pun right there? It's our homage to all the a-maizing things that come along with fall, like cozy flannels and spooky movies. In fact, you can't help but agree that autumn is simply the most gourd-ous time of year.

Oops, we did it again. But that's what you've come here for. And in honor of harvest, chilly mornings and changing leaves, we aim to deliver a bushel of the best fall puns for any (and every) occasion.

Whether you're collecting a-corn-y list of dad jokes to tell on the hayride or searching for a one-liner to give them all a chuckle while picking apples at the orchard, these autumn-inspired puns are sure to pump-kin them up.

They're also just right for Instagram posts, photo captions or sending a sweater-weather text to your partner or pals that says "You're my sweater half" or "Sweater late than never."

If you like those, there are plenty more to choose from, which must be a re-leaf, since there are so many fun fall activities coming up — like Halloween, for starters — that you're going to need a stockpile just to keep up.

Whatever it is, one thing's for sure: we're here to help. In fact, you might say we're at your beck and ... fall.
