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. https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/03/the...i-berra-quotes

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.
