If you want a roast to land, you have to be truthful. Say you're trying to roast an old man — it'd be ridiculous to call him a baby, right? Because he's not a baby. He's very very old. But if you saw an entitled rich kid crying at a restaurant because he's only 20 years old and can't order wine even though his parents practically run this town? Well, you call that man a baby. Because he's acting like a baby. And therefore, it rungs true.
