Is there anything more ridiculous looking than a camel? Those humps, lips, and teeth are just a hilarious combination. Don’t get us wrong, though — we love camels in all their absurdity. In addition to their usefulness in the desert, they’re a pretty cool animal. In fact, we’d be willing to wager that a ton of people consider camels to be their favorite animals. Sure, they spit like a baseball player. But they’re so goofy looking that you just can’t help but love ’em (spitwads and all). The general fondness we all feel for these creatures probably explains why they’ve worked their way into pop culture and countless memes across the internet. Enter, camel jokes and puns.

We compiled some of the best camel one-liners and knee-slappers to help get you through the Hump Day slump. And happily, the laughs don’t have to stop. There are jokes about other ridiculous-looking and less absurd animals as well. From fish to giraffes to pigs and beyond, literally any animal you can think of serves as fodder for joke material. Of course, those who like writing jokes will literally write them about anything. Would you guess that there’s a whole collection of banana jokes, too? They’re pretty a-peel-ing. And if you’re a jock? There are jokes about basketball, football, soccer, and more. No matter what you’re into, you’ll find jokes to tickle your type of funny bone.

Including those of you who can’t resist a good dromedary zinger. So, rest your weary hump for a bit and enjoy these camel jokes!
