The cheese has arrived
‘The Cheese has arrived’ is a funny phrase you can use to denote ‘Package delivered’. An alternative option is ‘The cheese has now reached your fridge.’
While most of the phrases on this list do not have a special than just being used when a package is delivered, you’ll find some phrases that make sense to be used in other situations.
Virtually everyone likes cheese and it’s most likely to be stored in a refrigerator. When the cheese gets to the customer that ordered, it’s most likely going in the refrigerator first. We can assume the phrase was created with this in mind.
Another possible interpretation of this phrase is metaphoric. The need for the customer to come to grab his/her package is represented by how you get cheese from the fridge.
‘Cheese’ is standing for the package that the customer ordered and ‘Fridge’ is standing for the pickup location where the customer needs to come to. Whoever wants the cheese in the fridge has to come to the fridge.
The good thing about this phrase is your customer will most likely understand this since he/she is already expecting you to deliver.
The eagle has landed
Another funny phrase to use instead of ‘Package delivered’ is ‘The eagle has landed’ which implies that the delivery has been completed successfully.
This is one of the few phrases on this list that makes perfect sense in this context and many others, being an approved English idiom.
There is a chance that your customer has heard this before so he/she would understand immediately you say this.
Also, if the Customer has no idea of this phrase’s existence, he/she should still understand what you are implying since the customer is expecting you to deliver a product.
The phrase, ‘The Eagle has landed’, was first used by Neil Armstrong in 1969 to inform the NASA Mission Control Center of a safe landing on the moon.
Since then, it has been adopted as an idiom to imply the successful completion of a mission. It is also often used to mean ‘successful arrival’ which makes sense in this case.
To inform your customer of the successful arrival of their order to the pickup location or their doorstep, you can say ‘The Eagle has landed.’
Your order’s dancing at your doorstep
Instead of just saying ‘Package delivered’, an alternative suggestion is ‘Your order’s dancing at your doorstep.’
This may be the clearest option on the list. When you say this to a customer, expect him/her to understand what you mean immediately.
This statement is not only pretty funny but also saves you the misery of confusing your customer and having to explain what you mean.
This doesn’t have to mean that the order is at the customer’s doorstep, even though that is possible. You can still use this if the order is in a near pickup location where the customer agreed to pick up the order from.
Just to make sure the Customer doesn’t think you’ve literally brought the order to his/her front door, you can include the address of the pickup location.
Santa Claus has stopped by
‘Santa Claus has stopped by’ is an alternative phrase to ‘Package delivered’ which isn’t only funny but should pass the message.
While this won’t be the vaguest phrase on this list, your customer may not understand you immediately. We all know who Santa Claus is and what he does. It doesn’t have to be Christmas. It’s even better if it isn’t Christmas.
That way, the customer automatically realizes he/she has to think outside the box. However, there shouldn’t be the need for that if the Customer is expecting the delivery.
Santa Claus delivers gifts during the Christmas period. Coming from your business, the customer should understand that a package has been delivered, even though it’s not Christmas time and the package is not free.
The hostages are released. Ransom time.
‘The hostages are released. Ransom time’ is another very funny alternative to ‘Package delivered’.
This may sound weird since ransom should come before the release. Who would agree to pay a ransom when all the hostages have been released? While this doesn’t make much sense, that is the logic of ‘Payment on delivery’.
This statement is quite clear and should be understood by your Customer immediately.
It is advisable to say this only when you are sure that the Customer has received the order. If you need the Customer to go to the pickup location or come outside to get it from you, you can say the first sentence only, ‘The hostages are released’.
When the Customer comes out and gets the package, you can hit him with the last phrase, ‘Ransom time’.
You can also choose to omit the ‘Ransom time’ if the order has been paid for before delivery. Another funny way to use this is immediately after payment and before delivery; ‘Ransom paid. Hostages will be released on [Date]. Rescue them in [Pickup location]’
The baby is crying on your doormat
‘The baby is crying on your doormat’ is another very cool and funny replacement phrase for ‘Package delivered’.
While this phrase isn’t an English idiom, it still makes perfect sense which may not be fully understood by the customers unless you explain.
However, while the idea behind this phrase may not be understood, the Customer will get what you mean by this.
When a baby is delivered, he/she cries and the father or mother has to come around to pick the baby up. This is the idea behind the phrase.
You can include a phrase before this to make it funnier and probably easier to understand; ‘The midwives did their job.’
Midwives refer to women who are not physicians but are trained to assist pregnant women in delivering their babies safely.
If the Customer knows what midwives are, he/she should get the idea more quickly when you say ‘The midwives did their job. The baby is crying on your doormat.’
The king is waiting
You can also say ‘The king is waiting’ instead of ‘Package delivered’.
This phrase is pretty vague and doesn’t have an explanation that reflects that you have delivered a package. However, the point is to pass a message that you have delivered the package that the Customer has been waiting for.
When you say the king is waiting, the customer should get the idea. To help him/her further, you can say where the ‘king’ is waiting.
This may be the address of the pickup location or the customer’s doorstep. In this case, the ‘king’ can be referring to the customer’s order or the delivery guy.
The moment has arrived
‘The moment has arrived’ is a beautiful replacement for ‘Package delivered.’
An expecting customer will get the point of this phrase immediately after you say or text it. The customer has definitely been waiting for the moment he/she would unbox that product.
Now that you have brought the product to him/her, ‘the moment has arrived’.
The cherry has popped
‘The cherry has popped’ is a cool and funny phrase to use instead of ‘Package delivered’.
This is an archaic slang idiom that has a totally different meaning in English. The Customer will find it even funnier if he/she has prior knowledge of the idiom. He/she would also get what you mean by it
‘The cherry has popped’ was popularly used in the 1970s and it refers to the losing of a woman’s virginity. ‘Popped’ denotes the necessary tearing of the hymen during the first penetration of a woman.
In this case, the package box is the hymen that is waiting to be torn by the customer. You can use this if you are sure that the customer has opened the box already.
If the package has been delivered but the customer is yet to receive it, you can say ‘The cherry is waiting to be popped’.
The midwives have delivered
‘The midwives have delivered’ is a cooler and funnier way to say ‘Package delivered.’
This phrase is not only funny but also very easy to understand by the Customer. Since ‘delivered’ is mentioned, the customer doesn’t have to decrypt any code to know his/her order is being referred to. In other words, he/she doesn’t need to have prior knowledge of what ‘‘midwife’ means.
If you are delivering the package at a pickup location, you can extend the phrase by adding ‘The clinic awaits.’ You can also add the address as a reminder for the Customer.
Ding! Your loot has landed
‘Ding! Your loot has landed’ is another funny alternative phrase for ‘Package delivered.’
The use of ‘Ding!’ suggests that you may be delivering to the customer’s front door. If that is the case, this option is advised. The meaning of ‘loot’ will be ignored here since it doesn’t matter.
It’s not Christmas but Santa delivered.
‘It’s not Christmas but Santa delivered’ is a funny phrase for ‘Package delivered’
You can say this before or after the customer receives and unboxes the package. It makes more sense if it isn’t Christmas.
Also, the Customer must have paid so he/she doesn’t expect a package from your business after receiving ‘Santa Claus’ delivery’.
Knock knock! It’s me, your knick-knack
‘Knock knock! It’s me, your knick-knack’ is a nice and funny phrase for ‘Package delivered’.
The structure of this phrase suggests that it’s the package speaking. The customer should get the idea immediately.
This makes more sense if you are delivering to the customer’s location.
Your ship has reached the dock
‘Your ship has reached the dock’ is a good and funny phrase for ‘Package delivered.’
The delivery process is often called ‘Shipping’. You can use this popular metaphor to coin your funny phrase.
Instead of saying the package is delivered, you can say ‘The ship has reached the dock’ i.e. delivery has been completed since it has reached where it is meant to reach.
Now, the Customer has to come out and get his/her product.
Your wish is granted. Who needs a genie?
‘Your wish is granted. Who needs a genie?’ is a vibrant and funny phrase for ‘Package delivered.’
The Customer was definitely wishing for the arrival of the product. By saying this, you are implying that you’ve granted the wish of the Customer.
Your prodigal son has come home
‘The prodigal son has come home’ is an allusive and funny phrase for ‘Package delivered.’
This phrase directly references a popular character in the bible. While the story may not denote the delivery of an item, it still passes the message to a customer who’s expecting your package.
You can also add ‘Meet him in your front yard’ if you are delivering to the customer’s location. Otherwise, include the address of the pickup location.

Your order is here. I repeat! Your order is in the building

The dramatic tone makes it funny. This is more suitable if you are delivering to the customer’s chosen location. It could be his/her home or workplace.
While it’s totally okay to say ‘Package delivered’, using a unique tone in interacting with your customers will allow for easy identification of your business. With humor, you can easily connect with your Customers.
