The ear is one of the five major sense organs of the human body.

The main work of an ear is to help us in hearing sounds. The sound enters our ear and is then carried to the brain via the auditory nerve, which helps us in processing and differentiating sounds and noises.

Most humans have a pair of ears, i.e., the left ear and the right ear. Did you know: ears also have the smallest bones of the body? The malleus, incus, and stapes. Ears also have a secondary function of maintaining the balance and equilibrium of the body. Please put on your noise-canceling headphones, block out all sounds, and submerge yourself into our ear puns that include some earring puns, piercing jokes, funny ear jokes. These are the best collections of the ear pun and ear one-liners.

If you are interested in more body based puns, why not take a look at knee puns or, for something different, time puns.
