- "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously."
- "Furiously sleep ideas green colorless."
I think this idea relates to the idea of "going to crazy town" in comedy and improvisation specifically. Some crazy scenes are painful to watch, and some crazy scenes make your gut hurt from laughing so hard. What's the difference? I think that the crazy stuff is only funny when it adheres to a structure, so that the madness makes sense within its own world.
A bunch of random talking objects shouting at each other is not funny --- unless they are guests at the wedding of the dish and the spoon and a fight has broken out.
