110 Foot Puns That Are Sure To Tickle You

Foot puns are funny because they use wordplay to make us laugh.

Feet are a great source of entertainment: you can tickle them and you can tell jokes about them too!

Feet are also a fascinating part of the human anatomy; they contain so many bones that they make up about a quarter of all the bones in your body! An adult foot contains 33 joints, 26 bones and 19 muscles.

The reason they are so ticklish is because of the 8,000 nerve endings you can find in your feet. Hang on to your feet carefully, because on average, people walk over 100,000 miles in their lifetime. Crazy, right?

Scientists have used foot bones to determine when humans started walking, millions of years ago. They have also been able to establish that humans have been wearing shoes for a very long time, perhaps almost 40,000 years ago!

Whether you have big feet, small feet, wide feet or flat feet, this collection of more than 100 foot puns should delight you! So settle down comfortably and read a foot pun or two; make sure you keep your feet on the ground, though!

If you're after some more entertainment about human anatomy, we recommend you take a look at this list of the best spooky skeleton jokes for kids.
