Bison are majestic, hulking creatures that roam the American prairies like furry tanks with a bad hair day. Sure, they may weigh as much as a small car and can run faster than you’d sprint for a Black Friday deal, but there’s something endearing about these behemoths. Perhaps it’s their resemblance to a gruff uncle who’s actually a big softie or the way they could be the living embodiment of a “before” picture in a shampoo commercial. Whatever it is, the Bison is more than just an iconic symbol of the American West; it’s an animal that screams, “Hey, I’ve got a personality here, people!”

Which brings us, of course, to Bison jokes—the snappy one-liners that make even these heavyweight herbivores chuckle (well, if they could). You see, Bison jokes are to humor what the animals themselves are to the prairie: absolutely essential and thoroughly entertaining. These jokes wander through the comedic landscape, grazing on puns and snacking on quick-witted observations.

Ever heard the one about why the Bison never plays cards? Because he’s always afraid of getting a “buffa-low” hand! Or how about why the Bison was kicked out of the movie theater? He couldn’t keep his “moo-th” shut! So whether you’re around a campfire, on a wildlife tour, or just stuck in a really long car ride through the plains, Bison jokes are guaranteed to make you laugh until you’re “hoarse,” or at least until the Bison decide they’ve had enough and amble away.
