Do you ever feel like lightening the mood in class? Or just simply making everyone laugh?

Have you heard people talking about their school days? Most of us recall them as the most memorable. And what is it that makes it so memorable? Physics? Chemistry? History? Mathematics? OF COURSE NOT!  School days are recalled for the mischiefs and the tricks we played as SOS ( read as Save our Skins).

We also recall some unique names we gave our teachers based on their distinct attributes! Some of them were outright insensitive and cruel, but at that age, we were way beyond caring. 

Between all the playtime and friends and pranks we had to tackle school and studies and for this students came up with some ingenious school abbreviations and school puns.

We never forgot a funny class or the fun we had in class and school puns added so much to the humor. There are people who might just hate puns especially when they are on the receiving end but this play of words and

language has been popular for quite some time. 

The plays of Shakespeare are a good example of puns.  So, as long as we use language,  school puns have been around and are here to stay.

Here are some popular school puns. These are those puns that students create based on their experiences in school.

      So, it is natural for the students to create school puns based on Teachers. Here are some Teacher puns.

Homework Puns to make fun of what you hate the most

Another dreaded and disliked part of school life is homework. Most students feel that teachers compete with each other to show the importance of their subject by giving more homework.

Hope you enjoyed these student or school puns. Remember, the student years are the best years of life. However, in the fun and frolic, we tend to forget the fine line of gratitude and hurt the very people; our teachers and parents who work so hard for our future.

Students must be grateful for the fact that they have teachers and an Institution which has only one purpose- helping students to do well in life 

Harmless school puns and fun is a welcome respite from the strict and demanding regimen of school and studies. So, let these moments of joy give wings to your imagination. Be creative with your own school puns, teacher puns, back to school puns, and homework puns. I am sure that this has set you all thinking and you have even perhaps thought of some creative school puns!

Remember, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so cut loose sometimes and enjoy yourself.
