Keeping a dead straight face while delivering a funny is hilarious. A classic example is Trigger in Only Fools and Horses (English version) - Britgirl

🎶 When you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard.
When you're in love with a beautiful woman, you know it's hard. 🎶 - Britgirl

Innuendo! Innuendo!
O sweet innuendo!
To love! I seek to read,
'Tween your sheets;
You cometh inside,
I cannot hide my lust;
My pride!
For thou whispers promises;
Whispers treats;
Thy need to keep you inside
My gaping mind.

Sweet Innuendo ~ Tina H.W. - Britgirl
