People often say and do funny things. While it is impossible to jot everything down, common phrases, metaphors, similes, and puns, can still make up to the audience as an ideal parody to start or end a story, a conversation, a debate, a discussion, or a song. To start with, try taking two double-meaning words and putting them together in a way that makes some sense. If it does, you're done. If not, pre-write and pile some more ideas to fill the gap!
