There’s a pretty general consensus among couples that if you can survive a trip to Ikea together, you can survive anything else life throws at you. That’s because the Swedish furniture giant is known for massive stores with nearly-endless aisles and sections selling everything from outdoor furniture to plastic baby cutlery. In other words, if it goes into your home, they sell it. And while a relationship may weather the shopping trip together, the jury is still out on whether it can survive the furniture assembly. Luckily for us, all this frustration has given way to hilarious Ikea jokes and puns that will have you rolling with laughter.
