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!”
Thats great to know. :) Is this an insight joke about how you want to have my babies? :D

Nice catch!

*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

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

“Gain more inside into”

Fresh from proof-reading a thesis and in its thousands on the ‘net. As a frinstance:

In this project we want to gain more inside into how civilians are coping with this transition and how they are trying to build up their families and communities

On the plain in Spain where it mainly rains.
