In code, unnecessary layers of indirection can be confusing and lead to bug. Do you really need to write code like: ***p = ****q.

However, in natural language, technically correct usages of indirection can be funny and sound sophisticated.

  1. "We need a plan for when we'll have the plan" 
  2. "Known Knowns", "Known Unknowns", and "Unknown Unknowns" 
  3. "I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate."
