Those two lines of Freeza in particular fit the character since he's sadistic and is enjoying himself as he slowly tortures Gohan and begins to blow up Krillin. He's laughing to so he can clearly joke to himself.
Couldn't the exact same thing be said about all of Freeza's god awful jokes in season 3? (In fact that's the exact same excuse I hear from people who like the old dub.)
I think people don't like these lines because they're bad puns, plain and simple. Unnecessary bad puns because the Funi writers thought they were hilarious.
