The 24 Best Celebrity Name Puns

Recently the Internet has been buzzing with a new meme trend – visual puns, usually poking fun at celebrities’ names. This all started back on September 8th, 2008 when someone uploaded a picture of Reese Witherspoon holding a spoon on the art message board b3ta. A picture next to it showed the actress with the spoon removed, and a caption that read “Reese Withoutaspoon”.

Then almost a year later another celebrity name went viral, this time it was a mirrored image of Kanye West, switching it to Kanye East. However, according to knowyourmeme the phenomena itself didn’t spread till 2012, when a Tumblr user i-am-oregonian posted a pun with Jafar from the 1992 Disney feature film Aladdin. The post received more than 65.000 notes from February till April.

Seeing more and more hilarious celebrity name puns popping up every day, we couldn’t resist making a list of the funniest ones out there. Did we miss anything?
