The In Joke is a small up-and-coming web comic on Deviant Art with the descriptive catch phrase of 'We take those "You had to be there' moments and bring them to you." It is based on real life events and conversation in the artist's life—moments usually understanderable only to those who witnessed them. Thus, they are "inside jokes". Can be found here at The In Joke Or here.
