37 Hot Dog Puns That Are Bun-Believably Funny

Hot dog puns make you think creatively and also make you giggle.

One of the highlights of the summer season is sitting outside in the sunshine with your friends and family and chowing down on some tasty barbecued delights.

Hot dogs are yummy popular sausages that are made from pork, beef or chicken. They're served in a long bread bun, with a mixture of toppings like onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard.

According to a survey in 2014, mustard was voted as the best topping for your dog, but over half of Americans also love to smother their buns in ketchup too. Here at Kidadl, we prefer puns to buns, and to be frank, these hot dog puns are far from the wurst out there. In fact, we think these puns are some of the best around, we got rid of any that didn't cut the mustard. If you want to know what to call a dog with a fever, or the wurst thing to eat on a diet, we've got just the puns for you. Celebrate the summer of sizzling sausages with these hilarious hot dog puns, and prepare to dazzle your friends with some frankly funny hot dog jokes and puns.
