Do you have any inside jokes with friends? If you do how often to you and your friend play these inside jokes to eachother? Do you bother trying to explain inside jokes with people who are around who don't understand it or do you not bother because they won't find it as humorous or anything.

I have a few inside jokes, though my friends and I tend to just be straight up with each other, especially around others, because if we can't just be obvious with the words/gestures we're conveying to each other, then there's probably no reason for us to even interact.

Of course, I had a few of those in grades 6-8, because kids are just immature like that, and they were enjoyable at the time being. There was this unspoken law that if you had established an inside joke with someone else, you were not to share it with anyone outside of your 'clique.'

do you know what hurts most about a broken heart?
not being able to remember how you felt before...
try and keep that feeling because... if it goes...
you'll never get it back. ever.

I have so, so many inside jokes with my friends. I sometimes feel bad for anyone hanging out with my roommates and I especially since we have so many and sometimes we aren't even aware we're talking about them. I hate when others do that so I try to be conscious of it but inside jokes are so common with us that it's impossible to catch them all.

I've learnt that explaining inside jokes is just a futile effort, though. It's rare when one has sprung from anything other than a "had to be there" moment.

Totally. That's what makes my groups of friends feel like we belong together; when we can joke about something that only we understand. Priceless every time, always just as annoying for other people who don't understand and don't want to understand xD

I don't like when others are doing inside jokes in front of me and I don't understand them.

Wooh, a LOT of inner jokes over here. Me and my friends do everything together, and as a result, a lot of funny stuff happens that we later reference and laugh at while people are like: "How in hell is that funny?" Lol

And yes, for some reason I tend to explain it even though I know no one's gonna care :/

Me and my friends have countless inside jokes which come up all the time, and I can tell it's annoying for other people due to the looks and sighs we get thrown our way lol. Plus I find it really irritating when people do it around me, so I guess I should be more careful in future! As for what they're about, our in-jokes are usually either sexual or obscene so it's even less surprising about the awkward looks haha.

My best friend and I have about a thousand inside jokes, mostly in the form of references to things from the Internet or just our general interactions with each other. We never try to explain them to other people because if too many other people are let in on an inside joke then it isn't exactly an inside joke anymore, and it loses its exclusivity and appeal .

That said, I never engage in inside jokes when we're around other people because that's really rude and only stands to make the other person/people feel left out.

I have inside jokes with nearly everyone I'm relatively close to, be it friends, family or even co-workers. If you spend enough time with someone, you're bound to come up with little in-things that only you and that other person/people will find amusing, and it'll gradually snowball from there into something resembling another language! And no, there's absolutely no point in explaining them to other people. Partially, it demystifies them and robs them of their impact, but also... people just normally won't understand, or will understand but won't be amused. So there's not really much of a point.

I had numerous inside jokes in middle school, but now that I'm in high school, many of my friends have moved away to different schools. So, needless to say, I don't have many inside jokes.
I do have one with a new friend though. Every time I see her, I yell as loud as I can (regardless of where I am) "HEY YOU MOTHERF__R".

I'm immature and I know it.
Are you sure you want to play this game?

I have inside jokes with friends online... Does that count?

fire an melly is one of them. Only a few people know about it but we all remember it fondly. Even if you do a search, you can't find the original topic because it was deleted by some ******* mod.
