    [JOKE] Paraprosdokians

    The first time I heard about paraprosdokians, I liked them.

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

    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 answered, "a doctor."

    11. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

    12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

    13. I used to be indecisive . . . but now I'm not so sure.

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

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

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

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

    Spread the Laughter,
    Share the Cheer,
    Let's be Happy,
    While we're still here!
