Latest comment: I don't agree. It'd be funny if he did a couple of these in the middle of a real routine, but at some point this becomes horribly predictable. Pick 2-5 that are particularly creative (not "a does b? why would a do b? why isn't b doing a? why isn't a doing c?") and add them to some real jokes. See, legally drunk is good because it's a play on words. Same with the last one, kinda. It's proposing a real second meaning even if it isn't the case. The others are Ignoring a perfectly rational meaning of the phrase either out of ignorance or out of attempt at humor, just to pretend it doesn't make sense. That happens every day when you don't understand something, and like any good human, try to think through it yourself.
