NEW YORK, NY – The New York Union of Knuckleheads (NYUK), the pre-eminent association of punsters and lovers of dad jokes, has awarded its highest honor, the Curly Howard Uncommon Comedic Knowledge, Laughter, & Entertainment (CHUCKLE) Award to the Disney+ show The Mandalorian in recognition of its historic role in inspiring countless puns.

Even Sam Ewell, one of the editors at Marvelous Movies and an unqualified genius, could not help but be inspired by the near-limitless pun potential presented by “The Mandalorian” as he created the above meme. Countless other individuals are following suit with Back to the Future jokes, wordplays around the “Man-” prefix, and the following, among others:

  • An entire, fictional lore around a Jack Black-helmed “The Kung-Fu Pandalorian.” If ever officially confirmed, experts tell us it will literally break the internet;
  • Memes featuring the underrated mandolin are literally sparking a musical revolution across every genre, with the exception of throat singing;
  • More obscurely, Billy Dee Williams-inspired jokes are proliferating across the internet with examples ranging from “The Mando Lando” to “Lando Man” and even “The Man: Lando.” While not as strong as other puns, they do feature Billy Dee Williams.

While The Mandalorian is expected to continue inspiring puns for years to come, its closest competitor, a kid-friendly reboot of The Punisher titled The PUNisher, will debut on Disney+ sometime next year.

What is the best thing that has come out of The Mandalorian? Baby Yoda or countless lowbrow puns?
