comment Evil twins and other tropes
to add two cents, ドッペルゲンガー is in wide enough usage to be the title of a good movie by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, where the ドッペルゲンガー was the evil version of the character. Also a famous song by Shiina Ringo : youtube.com/watch?v=ANKdvrBvfP0 i couldnt find a trailer but here is a clip / review youtube.com/watch?v=8a4C6IOqWDs

regarding the quoted sentence exclusively, it is not clear that it is used anaphorically, no?

I'm interested if 仕事の一部を誰かにやってもらったほうがいい can mean your first sentence. The 2nd sentence is natural and understandable.

comment Help with an expression that uses お笑い vocabulary
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?
