So, here is a collection of jokes, puns, and lifestyle references for all of you out there living gluten-free and need some comedic relief. Hope you enjoy!

Responses for when people say, “Come on, is a little bit of gluten really going to hurt you?”

  • Gee, I don’t know…would a little bit of laxative hurt you?
  • Sure, right after you take a swig of gasoline. Let me know how that goes.
  • Listen, in a few minutes, you’re going to wish I hadn’t eaten the gluten either.
  • It will literally make my insides bleed but you’re right…no big deal.

Things that drive celiacs crazy:

  • “The gluten-free diet is just a fad”
  • “Can’t you just take off the bun?”
