here's a couple things i've been into lately:

-putting quotes around anything
-responding to any statement with "but have you heard about the economy?"
-using stupid/outdated cliche's ie "i like the cut of your jib"

My currently lewd favorite is 'Pound Town', as in "Are you meeting that girl in pound town this weekend" or "I've been to pound town so many times lately I should be the mayor." The material practically writes itself.
