    I wonder if this could possibly be beneficial ...

    I would suggest no, but it might make a very nice comedy for those aware and a not so nice comedy for those who weren't so privy.

    It's the false definitions part that reveals the crux

    Good example. One of my favourites is:

    There's also a radio programme in UK called "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue", which is a comedy panel game, with silly games, like providing alternative definitions to words. Such as:
    Barbecue: A long line of plastic dolls
    Busking: Owner of many buses.
    Champagne: To fake injury.
    Gelatine: A device for cutting the heads off jelly babies.
    Nudity: A song for when the old one gets stale and boring.
    Octagon: A dead octopus.

    Hopefully they don't need explaining?
