Punny Stories:

Trick or Treating

It was Halloween night when I looked at the clock and saw that it was finally time to trick or treat myself to some candy. I came downstairs to show my mom my costume and it definitely gave her pumpkin to talk about! She didn’t like how scary my costume was but I told her I was just creepin’ it real this Halloween. I felt like I was lookin’ gourd-geous! I went out with my little sister who was dressed as a princess. What a Hallo-Queen! She was lookin brew-tifu tonight! We raced from house to house collecting as much candy as we could. After many hours of hunting for candy, we were very tired. My sister was being witchy, so I took her home. I couldn’t resist goblin up my candy. 


Blue the Ghost 

There once was a ghost named Blue. She wasn’t very boo-tiful and had very little ghoul-friends. One day Blue decided she didn’t want to feel so blue. She wanted to go out on Halloween night like all of the other kids. Blue decided she had to look fa-boo-lous! After spending hours to get ready, Blue was never satisfied with her look. 


“This is boo-sheet!” She yelled. 


All Blue wanted was to have a fun Halloween night but realized she didn’t know what she was booing with herself. She knew her destiny was to scare the trick or treaters, not to get her own treats. Although Blue never was happy with doing what everyone else was doing, she realized her purpose was to spook the people! After realizing this, Blue was confident. 


“I am bad and boo-gie!” She said with all of her pride and joy. 


Zippy Gets a Job


My name is Zippy and I am a Zombie. Every morning I wake up and have a fresh bowl of zom-beans. I’m not a vegan zombie but I sure love grains! I threw a couple in with my zom-beans. Today, I have an interview for a new job because the last job didn’t think I was lively enough. What a deadly assumption! I looked black and white and dead all over in my tux that I wore for the interview. I came into the office and flirted a bit with the lady at the front desk. I like intelligent women because I love a woman with brains! I definitely thought it would be love at first bite. She wasn’t buying it. I walked into the interview room and right off the bat, they made fun of my tux. I quickly decided at this point on, I would be scrubbing toilets and eating brains for the rest of my life.
