A play on words. Generally a pun takes a word that is quite understandable in context and replaces it with a homonym (same-sounding word) to create an entirely new meaning, or replaces a word with a similar-sounding one to the same effect.

A pun involving a word with two possible meanings --

Nurse, to young woman about to receive a vaccination:

"You're going to feel a little prick."

Woman: "It wouldn't be the first time."

* * *

A pun that uses a similar-sounding term to the expected one, to humorous effect --

A one-liner: "JFK's private life was so sexy they should have called his administration Cum-A-Lot."

1. A joke, usually a play on words involving either a homonym, or a phrase that rhymes with the original quote.
2. A very, very, VERY low form of humor, and often makes everyone within a ten mile radius sigh and pinch their eyes together.

These jokes will likely get you killed, the best case scenario is that someone laughs, simply because the joke is so bad/stupid, that said person cannot help but laugh, then tell you to get the out of the room.
never tell a pun, if you want to keep anything you hold dear.

A clever play on words, often used for comedy. The play on words often use similar sounding words or homonyms to replace words that would normally be in the sentence. Another form is when a word with a double meaning is used to relate to a different word in the sentence in two different ways. Puns tend not to be funny, and often receives light sarcastic laughter. Many people fail at making these. One specific person comes into mind...
Chinese teacher: So, HOW is life?
Chinese student: Life is HAO.
Chinese teacher: *sighs* Why must I put up with this?
James: Oh, It's pun! *high fives*
Chinese student: wooooooooow...
Chinese teacher: Detention, both of you.
