They say your Instagram post should either entertain or educate your audience. Honestly, there’s no correct way but I’ve found that being humorous is my way to cope with the daily stress and to provide a minor escape to the mundane. Wow, even spelling MUNDANE sounds, well… mundane. But writing a funny caption isn’t as easy as it seems. It takes time to think of clever and catchy rhymes or puns. Here’s my easy to follow tips and tricks to nailing a punny caption.
4 Super easy ways to create a PUNny caption
- Create a note section in your phone dedicated to caption ideas. This will be where you store all those T-shirt sayings or jokes you heard on Captain Underpants (if you have boys) etc. Make little check marks when you’ve used them up but don’t delete them!! It’s so funny to look back and reflect on them + you will know if you’ve used the same one twice.
- Stroll down the card section of the store. Cards these days have such good jokes and puns especially around the Holidays… Make sure to jot them down in the notes section you created just for captions. If you are in a hurry, just take a quick pic and enter in all the deets later.
- Visit your local Barnes and Noble or book store and look up joke books. I’ve sat for an hour looking through books with great puns even featuring Twitter rants that seriously make me laugh out loud. Speaking of twitter, people unleash their funny on that app. I mean, don’t go making an account for the funnies but if you do have one, follow a few comedians. They offer such good material.
- Follow meme accounts on IG like: @momsandproud which has hilarious Mom and Dad jokes. I often repost them or tweak what I’ve seen to my own liking. You can save funny IG posts to review later on but I find it’s much more effective to store them in notes as IG can get overwhelming. Remember to tag people if you are directly quoting them!!
