I love comical misuses of language, and probably do it a lot in Spanish. I see the errors in Firpo's quotes, but only sometimes see to humor due to my imperfect knowledge of Spanish. In the USA there was a beloved baseball player named Yogi Berra who was famous for hilarious quotes. Here are some examples.

Film producer Samuel Goldwyn was also known for his somewhat illogical quotes. He coined some that are part of standard speech today. For example: include me out, and I'll give you a definite maybe.
Me ayuda si corrige mis errores. Gracias.
