It’s no wonder there are so many hilarious kangaroo jokes — kangaroos are pretty funny animals. They hop around all over the place. They’re so muscular it looks like they’ve been hanging out at the gym. They even have their own built-in fanny packs in the form of pouches — a trait that makes them marsupials. Another bit of trivia? While kangaroos can hop at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, they aren’t able to move backward.
Kangaroos also have amusing names. For example, a male kangaroo is known as a buck, boomer, jack, or old man. A female kangaroo is the doe, jill, or flyer, and a baby is called a joey. In addition to hopping, male kangaroos also get into boxing matches with each other, trying to impress the females of the species.
As fun as these facts are, kangaroo jokes and puns pack even more of a punch. Keep reading, ’cause these knee-slappers are guaranteed to make you hoppy.
