Puns may be regarded as in-jokes or idiomatic constructions, given that their usage and meaning are entirely local to a particular language and its culture. For example, camping is “intense” (in tents).

    The first phone call from heaven is with the Mystery Man from Lost Highway. The first phone call from heaven is from Mitch Albom, what? The first phone call from heaven is from Hitler. He has bad news.” - Brian Warfield
