Thursday 13 my favorite Paraprosdokians

Food for Thought

Paraprosdokians are figures of speech; in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected and is frequently humorous.    (Winston Churchill loved them). 

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

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

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

4. We never really grow up -- we only learn how to act in public.

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

6To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

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

8.  In filling out an application, where it says, "In case of emergency, notify..." I answered "a doctor."

9..                                      A clear conscience is usually the sign of a                                                    bad memory.

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

11.                                    A bus station is where a bus stops. A train                                                station is where a train stops. On my desk, I                                             have a work station.

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

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

Made me laugh a lot
