I am not a native English speaker. Yet, I make up "punish" proverbs while sleeping. Here is one: "Who exists exits." Don't hesitate, tell me the truth.

(I had edited this post before I became a member. My edits disappeared at that very moment. So I write up again what I wanted to tell the community about the broader context of my Question.
The origin of my interest in punning/joking/word-playing in different languages originates with the following story. I tried to be funny with an older colleague of mine, a professor of mathematics at Berkeley, when I told him: "Yes, I've read the introduction to that book. I'd need an innertroduction, though." He answered: "Not funny: >>in<< is not the preposition, the preposition is >>intro<<. So, you could have said >>Introer duction to ... , but that would have been even worse. Why, that I don't know."
So, that was the beginning. I've read Bergson's The Laughter (or whatever the English title is) and other philosophers' treatises on the role of language in humor.
As a non-native English speaker I am very much interested in learning more about the specialties of English, as a foreign language, regarding the possibilities and impossibilities of joking--joking with and joking by the language. My mother tongue is Hungarian, a funny language.
So, please, don't stop discussing this (off-)topic.
