Fun Talents of Dubious Utility

I am sufficiently well-versed in the classic Abbott and Costello routine, "Who's On First", and the principles behind it to be able to improvise entirely new variations of the routine extemporaneously.

This only works if you have two people who can do it, however.

The key thing to remember is that the person in the "Abbott" roll always interprets the various ambiguous words as names, while "Costello" always interprets them as descriptors -- pronouns, adjectives, times of day, etc. Naturally, there's an exception.
