    Smile Why is "Oliver Klozoff" laughable?

    Bart is a mischevious 10-year-old. One day, he called a tavern boss Moe. Here's their dialogue by phone. I am wondering why people had belly laugh when Moe was crying and looking for Oliver Klozoff. Thanks in advance!

    Scenario:

    Moe: Moe's Tavern.

    Bart: Is Oliver there?

    Moe:Who?

    Bart: Oliver Klozoff.

    Moe: Hold on. I'll check.

    Moe cried to his customers: Oliver Klozoff! Call for Oliver Klozoff!

    ( People in the tavern cracked up laughing)

    This is an running gag in "The Simpsons" .

    The names are all double-entendres - they sound like something else.

    Oliver Klozoff = All of [your] ya clothes off.
