I think part of why he’s sublimely funny is that he tries to be witty, tries to make od associations, and through time and experience, he regularly hits them. Wide brain. He hits off keys to make beautiful music. He has metaphors shining out of his corpus collosum, and he inserts regular life into that body of work, so that the juxtapositions of contexts add greater newness and obvious but weird twists. He’s the Anti-boring.
