    Paraprosdokians

    Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous. Enjoy!

    1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

    2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

    3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

    6. War does not determine who is right,
    only who is left.

    7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

    9. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

    10. In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, notify:'
    I put 'DOCTOR.'

    11. You do not need a parachute to skydive. But you do need one to skydive twice.

    12. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    13. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

    14. You're never too old to learn something stupid.

    15. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Make a decision and live with the consequences; if you don't like the consequences, blame it all on someone else.
