All I can promise you is that the people who I've seen doing it are not doing it humorously. They're all serious about using words like that. They all need killed, or at the very least they need slapped.
This is what I was saying about people doing things wrong, either accidentally or on purpose because it's funny, but then it catches on and starts to become "the right way" of doing it because people don't know any better.
Keep an eye out for this trend of taking "to be" out of sentences. It reads really bizarrely because it looks like you're using present and past tense right next to each other. "Needs fixed". "Wants punched".
