    Paraprosdokians(from Greek,” meaning “beyond” and “expectation”) 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 reframe or reinterpret the first part:

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

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

    ? A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you will look forward to the trip.

    ? A fool and his money are soon elected.

    ? Buses stop in bus stations. Trains stop in train stations. On my desk there is a work station.

    ? Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

    ? Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    ? Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    ? How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

    ? I always take life with a grain of salt, plus a slice of lemon, and a shot of tequila

    ? I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    ? If you are supposed to learn from your mistakes, why do some people have more than one child?

    ? Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    ? . Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright

    until you hear them speak..

    ? Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.

    ? Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.

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

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

    ? We never really grow up; we only learn how to act in public.

    ? When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water.

    ? Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?

    ? Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars but check when you say the paint is wet?

    I ABSOLUTELY did not copy anything. So don’t try to rationalize and say “you do it too” , because even though you do, I most definately do not.

    Why do Americans choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?

    My answer – Because all of the garbage from the advertisements would fill too many landfills and no one would be able to talk on the phone because of all of the automated phone calls persuading them to vote for one of the 50 candidates. Can you imagine a debate on that scale?

    If life gives you lemons, keep them, because, hey, free lemons!

    If life gives you melons, you may be dyslexic.

    #Life is like a roller coaster, It has it’s ups and downs, but, it’s your choice to scream or enjoy the ride!

    If someone points out my black clothes, and asks whose funeral I’m going to, I reply by looking around the room and saying ” I haven’t decided yet:

    YOu are not fat, you have fat. you also have fingernails, but you are not fingernails
