Sleep puns and jokes are universal. We’re all tired these days (Netflix > sleep), so it’s something we all have in common.
That means there are endless opportunities to complain or brag about how little sleep you’re getting (there are two kinds of people out there). Instead of falling into the same boring conversations, drop in some funny sleep puns to mix things up!
There are only two ways it can go. The first is that the listener will appreciate your wit and comedic skills. The second is they’ll roll their eyes and never tell you how tired they are again.
Either way you win.
We had a blast putting together this list. It’s a mix of sleep puns and sleep jokes, so take whichever you enjoy the most and put them to work!
