10 Funny Fall Quotes To Get You Ready For Autumn

by Chelsey Grasso

There are very few people who aren't "into" fall, but if you're one of them, you may be pretty sick of hearing about the glorious foliage and crisp autumn air by this time of the year. I'll be honest, it is pretty darn hard to talk smack on what I think is clearly the best season of the year, but that doesn't mean you can't still have a good laugh at its expense. Rounded up below are 10 funny fall quotes that take a stab at the much beloved season. That's right, haters, you have come to the right place — though if I'm being honest, these quotes are fairly lighthearted in their manner and not meant to be read maliciously... just with a chuckle. Still, something's better than nothing, right?

From a hilarious one liner from David Letterman to a rather dated poetic clause from William Allingham, there's something in here that will make just about every cynic (and even fall-lover) have a good laugh. There are endless amounts of jokes regarding everything pumpkin spice and ~sweater weather~, but I like to think that these quotes have a little more class to them, whether they are being silly, odd, or just plain bitter.
