Think of familiar phrases or titles and bridge them together in unexpected ways using Punnification, Apposition, Tropes, Nonsensical Linguistics, and other devices. Examples:

Coke Zero: Dark and Dirty

Zero Dark Thirty Something

Drive, He Said, She Said

Or change one word inside or at the end of a title to give it a "new" (possibly funnier) meaning. Clever appropriations of titles already in use include, In the Realm of the Senseless. Rage Against the Coffee Machine is a well known rant. Love in the Time of Diarrhea is a twist on Love in the Time of Cholera. Certainly, I can relate to that. Lol. I leave it to followers of William Safire, to determine the origin/history of phrases and their modifications.
