Comedy memes

Anyone else noticed that certain words, places and other items crop up unusually often in comedy routines (sketches, standup, whatever)? Wikipedia has an inherently funny words item about this phenomenon. Apparently the duck is the funniest animal. Although I would consider the badger a close second.

Recent examples I've noticed include Boggle (the game) which seems to be edging in, and the perennial favourite comedy place: Sheboygan, WI.
