When a person, or people, take a concept from a popular TV show - usually a catchphrase - and try and make it funny in every day life. Effectively borrowing the line to try and create humor.
Guy, who is not Dane Cook, walks into a party and yells "Wait a second?! Who shit on the coats!"

This is an example of borrowed humor. Expectations were not confounded, thence humor did not arise from it.
