Don't forget Fudd's First Law of Opposition, nor Teslicle's Deviant.
Who could forget?

Fudd's First Law of Opposition: "If you push something hard enough, it will fall over."

and

Teslacle's Deviant to Fudd's Law: "Half of what goes in here must come out there."

Don't forget Flanders and Swann! :)
I don't think I've ever heard of them; I'll have to look them up! :)

From wikipedia ...
Flanders and Swann were a British comedy duo. Lyricist, actor and singer Michael Flanders (1922–1975) and composer and pianist Donald Swann (1923–1994) collaborated in writing and performing comic songs. They first worked together in a school revue in 1939 and eventually wrote more than 100 comic songs together. They were active together from 1956 to 1967.
All right, so obviously their songs are a little old-fashioned and (occasionally) refer to things that were current then, like Charles de Gaulle or the Profumo Affair. But most of their songs stand alone and don't need much explaining. :) For instance:

The Hippopotamus Song
Mozart Horn Concerto

Michael Flanders occasionally also did funny monologues, like Built Up Area and Greensleeves. :)

Hope that gives you a taste! :)
