"No Pun Intended"?

Tue May 22, 2012 6:41 am

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

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.

No! Pun intended.

That makes me want to hit the button.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

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

I feel that people in Alaska should be monitored for posting in this thread. We should not Anchorage them.

Apologies to Aloges, but I can't let these two go strolling by without:

The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word, and doesn't even make sense.

I once had a vacuum cleaner that wasn't very good. It really sucked.
