Why do people so often say "no pun intended" when the pun is usually intended?

Quoting zrs70 (Thread starter):

Is it usually intended? It's entirely possible to accidentally make a pun, or something that can be construed as a pun. Happens quite often, actually.

Well, merely saying "no pun intended" isn't funny. In fact, if you make a pun intentionally and say "no pun intended", you deserve to be punched in the face (okay, perhaps that's a bit harsh, but you get the idea). Have the decency to take credit for your work, and the looks of either approval or disappointment that follow.

And yes, I do see this thread unraveling into a sequence of mediocre-at-best puns in the very near future.

I just sent 10 puns to my friends, with the hope that at least 1 of the puns would make them laugh. But no pun in ten did.


That'll teach you

I have noticed quite a scarcity in humor or "humour" (no pun intended) in these forum pages.
