Sometimes colloquially added to something you just said,to indicate that there is a pun to it.
As the turtle and rabbit raced off in a racecar and robbed little 8-year-old Jamie of his pants,they called to him,"You lost your pants,kiddo,but keep your shirt on-pun intended!"

I've read every definition here and they all get this terms' meaning slightly wrong. Firstly a pun is a play on words, intended to be semi-absurd and comical by describing a thing or situation using words that could also describe the situation with another meaning. For instance suppose there was a skinny farmer picking berries, but he doesn't find that many, another person might observe "looks like slim pickins".

Puns often are the worst kind of joke because they do not require much cleverness.

When someone says no pun intended, however, it is when they say something that could be taken to have two meanings; an obvious one, and a slightly "off" interpretation; and they want you to know they are not making an intentional play on words and want you to take what they said to be the obvious meaning:
Example: a man dares his friend to kiss a rather large woman, to which his friend replies "Fat chance! No pun intended."

AMERICAN PHRASE, widely considered by some to be a cliché. Two uses of this phrase.

#1. "No pun intended!" Is a clarification you make after a remark you uttered that DID indeed contain a pun. You exclaim, "No pun intended" because you honestly did mean to construct the setence to contain a pun.

#2 The second meaning of, "no pun intended" can be tongue-in-cheek or more harshly put, untruthful. In this instance a person purposely inserted the pun. The motivations for doing so vary. Some reasons include: doing it to be humerous, attempting to be clever, wanting to engage in word play, or doing so to annoy people who hate puns. They fib by saying, "No pun intended!" because: they want to avoid embarrassment after no one laughed, escape retribution from those they annoyed on purpose or perhaps they feel foolish for making the pun at all.
#1 Pun WITHOUT intent. "That pistol is so tiny looks like he could be a son of a gun. Sorry, no pun intented!"

#2 Pun WITH intent: "Look at that duck. Hope he has a lot of money just look at the size of his BILL! Ha, ha, ha! No pun intended, right guys?"
