What does 'pun' mean?

Hi everybody! I've been checking out jemsite quite a bit now, and pretty often I see people using the word 'pun'. Me being from The Netherlands, I don't know what it means. Can anyone tell me?

Here is a misquote of Samuel Johnson. When asked to speak
a pun, he responded:
Johnson: A pun on what subject.
Response: The Queen.
Johnson: The Queen is not a subject.

Pun sounds like Punt, no paronomasia intended.

sorry, just wanted to use that big word...
