And, even though we sell essential oils and natural products I love sharing with our readers funny, humorous and educational things I stumble upon from time to time.

Today’s blog post is about Paraprosdokians. Don’t know what they are?

Here’s the Wikipedia definition

A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to re-frame or re-interpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an anticlimax. For this reason, it is extremely popular among comedians and satirists.

Now that you know what they are, here are some for you to ponder…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.

  12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
  13. I used to be indecisive. 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.
