Short, well-known sentences. Theoretically they are good for a laugh any time, if used properly; actually their meaning and function may vary considerably with the context. Gag lines famous in fandom include "The Gostak Distims the Doshes", "Goshwowboyoboy", "Yngvi is a louse", "Savage sullen defiant and contemptuous", and "Who sawed Courtney's boat?"
