Sometimes low hanging fruit is the funniest joke out there.
There’s always a chuckle to be had when last names on jersey combine to create a random phrase. Newly signed Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith found himself in this situation and did exactly what everyone should do, he took a photo and shared it over social media.

Brilliant and juvenile, the perfect combination for a childish chuckle. Luckily for us, Chris Long and Fletcher Cox both play on the defensive line, so there’s a chance we’ll get to see this combination on nationally broadcasted games. Long later admitted the gag was his idea.
@TorreySmithWR Grow up Torrey lol!!!

This prompted me to find some more phrases that have nothing to do with sports but make fans chuckle simply because they reference something unrelated in popular culture.
