Punny Halloween costumes are are your jam if your friends have ever rolled their eyes at your dad jokes. Also, they're for you if you are you too lazy to buy a whole Halloween costume you’ll wear once just to toss in the back of your closet as soon as the night is over. Current events in 2022 actually inspire lots of clever costumes you can put together with (very) minimal effort. These aren't too slutty to go trick-or-treating with the kids, and aren't so uncomfortable that you can't nosh all the sweets and seasonal desserts or just curl up to watch a not-too-scary movie. Without further ado, here are some of the best pun costumes (most of which you can create from items you already own).
