What did the ghost say on January 1? "Happy Boo Year." Or, What was the caterpillar's New Year's resolution? To turn over a new leaf. If those didn't do it for you, we have others...


Short, sweet, and to the point. One-liners are either a hit or a miss, so you might want to give both of these a try: My New Year's resolution was to read more, so I turned on the subtitles on my TV. Or, I'm going to stay up late this New Year's Eve—not to ring in the New Year, but to make sure this one leaves—After the year we've had, this one is definitely appropriate.

If you run out of ideas, you can always steal a one-liner from the desk of Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He started his own podcast, Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend, back in 2018, and with over 100 episodes and counting, he has been keeping us clutching our bellies every week since!


It doesn't matter how many years go by, puns always have been and always will be a trend (no matter how much we try to stop it). Lucky for you, no research is needed when has your back. Try out: What's a cow's favorite holiday? Moo Year's Eve! LOL. If that one doesn't work, there's always: They say New York City has the best New Year's celebration, but I say it's overrated. Every year they drop the ball.

If that still doesn't get them, then whip out your strongest one: What did the friends say to each other at midnight on New Year's Eve? "I haven't seen you since last year!"
