    That knocked him out

    ""M'boy, if I felt any better I'd have to send for the doctor," old Spencer said. That knocked him out. He started chuckling like a madman."

    What does "that knocked him out" means?

    In this context - something struck him as incredibly funny.

    Re: That knocked him out

    I know it can also mean to knock someone unconscious but can it also mean something else?

    Could I say,

    "She really knocks me out."

    You can say "She's a knock-out" if she's really pretty.
