Added DiffLines:

** The whole dynamic of the ''"Dimwit & Duke"'' series, really. Duke is portrayed as the ideal young Columbian patriot, while [[MeaningfulName Dimwit]] is a blundering, sloppy dullard. Also: in one of the toy shops, an NPC might complain about never having enough Dimwit [[TheMerch merch]] in stock. So either Dimwit enjoys an EnsembleDarkhorse status throughout Columbia [[WartsAndAll despite his issues]], or Columbian parents think very little of their kids...
*** It's also mentioned early on (just after landing in Columbia) that, while a mother tries to teach her kid about "duty" superseding everything, the kid's reluctance to buy into it makes her wonder [[CallForward if she's raising a Duke or a Dimwit]].

** It is even funnier if you realized that he essentially invented modern filmmaking by accident - notice that all kinetoscope movie shots you have seen before are filmed from a static position and angle. (Actually moving the camera to tell a story is pioneered by [[Film/TheBirthOfANation a certain film in 1915]].)

Despite its rather grim narrative and abundance of grisly events, ''[=BioShock=] Infinite'' is full of genuinely funny moments.

** What makes this even funnier is the voice actors: it's [[Series/MassEffect Shepard]] arguing with [[Series/SaintsRow Boss]], or alternately [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Bastila]] and [[Series/StreetFighter Chun Li]] going at it.

* It's in the middle of a tense moment (which may explain why players might find it amusing), but when Songbird is about to kill Booker and Elizabeth steps between them, Songbird's response is to gently push Elizabeth out of the way.
