Nowadays, puns are often considered “dad jokes,” or jokes that make people groan and roll their eyes more than they make people laugh. Sometimes puns are deliberate and corny, but still fun. Other times, they are inadvertent but realized in the moment. If this is too funny to let pass unnoticed, the speaker or writer may use the phrase no pun intended. The phrase may also be used to spare someone’s ego if they make a pun that is not well received, according to Linguaholic. If someone makes a pun and nobody laughs, they may use the phrase no pun intended to insist that they were not trying to make a pun or “dad joke.” What is a pun? Overall, the phrase no pun intended is used when someone has created a clever play on words known as a pun, whether intentional or not. The phrase can be used to call out a pun, draw attention to the fact that one made a pun, or to spare one’s ego if the pun they made fell flat.There is even a competition for pun creation, the O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships. In this competition, punslingers (a pun on gunslingers) compete against each other to win. In one category, they present as many excellent puns as they can in 90 seconds, and in the other, competitors go head to head to create puns on a given topic in four rounds of single-elimination heats. The competition has existed since 1977 in Austin, Texas. In 2020, the competition went virtual due to the “pundemic.” Oxford Languages states that a pun is a joke which utilizes the different meanings of a word, or similar-sounding words. These double meanings are used to create humorous – and sometimes cringeworthy – jokes.
