This is the kind of line I used to use as a kid, say part of a sentence, knowing that the listener would fill in the rest incorrectly. I was a wicked child when it came to dueling words, but fairly mild in nature.
This reminds me of The Cowboy Wally Show, “oh yeah, lock the gate!”

I always found this strip interesting, because although there’s only one spoken word in the whole thing “AAAAHH!” (not counting Blake’s sleep mumblings), the strip really takes a lot of time to fully read, because each activity and expression plays a role in the strip.
