Insight Joke ... for Inside Joke

An inside joke (also known as an in joke) is a joke whose humor is clear only to those people who are “inside” a social group, occupation or other community of common understanding; an esoteric joke. It is humorous only to those who know the situation behind it.

I suppose it stands to reason that a person could also say that the joke is only understood by those with a specific insight!!!

Some examples:

”@yodaism I don’t even know what a jedi is nor I want too. :-( It was an insight joke btw my sis and I ok!”

Nice catch!

we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)
