Also in case you're interested I think a decent equivalent term to つっこみ would be "the straight man". There was an older tradition of western comedy as well, kind of like laurel and hardy, where this applies in a similar fashion- a dumb guy unwittingly makes a joke and the straight man corrects/chastises him.

Would this expression be used by itself in a manner similar to my revised translations? ...I saw this expression when a japanese person was talking about their top ten english grammar peeves.

Thank you. Is the 突っ込み in 突っ込みどころ the person (つっこみ) or the action?

comment How is this verb being conjugated and contracted?
thanks. I was puzzled about the "かぶせるん" <"かぶせるの" contraction. I see that this can be a question form with the の, ( maybe not here though) so is こんなくそみたいな帽子かぶせんじゃねーよ!!” also a question, like "Why do I have to put on this shitty hat?" ? I was also interested in the kaburu / kabuseru relation, thanks for touching on that. do you think it merits another question? I am interested in how they are related, how they diverged...
