i would like to propose that we make a distinction between “bilingual” (or polylingual) puns, and “crosslingual” ones.

a bilingual pun would be one that relies on two separate languages, for example:
“Why do French people prefer to have small breakfasts? Because one egg is un oeuf!”
or from Blackadder Goes Forth:
Lieutenant George: Smithy, you haven’t seen any suspicious characters hanging around have you, who might be German spies?
Brigadier Smith: Nein.
Lieutenant George: Nine! Well, the cap’s got his work cut out, then.

conversely, a crosslingual pun would be one that can be translated from one language to another and still maintain the same basic pun, for example:
Japanese: Bakemonogatari (bakemono monogatari)
English: Ghostory (ghost story)
or to explain where cats go when they die
English: Purrrgatory.
Spanish: Purgatorio
