20 Hilariously Silly Animal Jokes and Riddles

Who doesn’t like a good joke right? I tend to particularly love puns and silly jokes and riddles. Awhile back, I was looking for some jokes to transform into corgi jokes. Things like: How do you keep a corgi from smelling? Answer: You hold its nose! In the process I found a few sites with a number of funny animal jokes. So, I thought I would share some of them!

Most of these jokes are old favorites. They have been passed around so many times, that crediting the original source is next to impossible, but here are the sources that I derived these from: Dog Breed Jokes, Animal Quackers, and Jokes About Cats.

Browse through and be prepared to laugh and groan at these 20 silly animal jokes and riddles.
