Many times I've heard of 'pun intended' or 'pun not intended', which I see as a form of excuse in the English-spoken world. However, I can not wrap my head around why are you constantly excusing/explaning something so innocent(?) as pun.
What I am giving off constantly saying 'pun intended'? What's the purpose of constantly saying 'pun (not) intended'?
We don't excuse puns in my native language, in my country, we just laugh it off.
