In-joke

An in-joke known as an inside joke or a private joke, is a joke whose humour is understandable only to members of an ingroup, that is, people who are in a particular social group, occupation, or other community of shared interest. It is an esoteric joke, i.e. it is humorous only to those who are aware of the circumstances behind it. In-jokes may exist within a small social clique, such as a group of friends, or extend to an entire profession. An example is: Q: What's yellow and equivalent to the Axiom of Choice? A: Zorn's lemon; this joke is so esoteric that most outsiders could not confidently guess to which group it might be funny, let alone why. In fact, it is a pun on the name of a famous result, Zorn's Lemma. Ethnic or religious groups may have their own in-jokes. In-jokes are cryptic allusions to shared common ground. An in-joke works to build community, sometimes at the expense of outsiders. Part of the power of an in-joke is that its audience knows that there are those who do not understand the joke.

An in-joke can be used as a subtext, where people in the know may find humour in something not explicitly spoken. They may apologize for doing so to a rookie, directly or indirectly stating that what they were laughing at was an in-joke.

Forest of the Gods

Forest of the Gods is a 2005 film, directed by Algimantas Puipa, based on the Balys Sruoga novel of the same name, published in 1957. This story is about one man —, an artist and an intellectual — he was imprisoned by two brutal regimes, the Nazis and the Soviets.'The Professor' is a man who lives by his own personal version of the Ten Commandments. After miraculously surviving imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp through a bit of ironic fate, he writes a memoir of his life, which becomes the target of the Soviet censors; the so-called "freedom" of Communism becomes just as oppressive as the German concentration camp. The 98-year-old Vladislovas Telksnys, the only Lithuanian survivor of the Stutthof concentration camp in 2013, referred to the movie as "a piece of nonsense". In particular he referred to the scene depicting a Gestapo officer marching and a woman with an umbrella following behind. According to Telksnys, "there were no such things".
