The big word in the title of today's Sunday Funnies is Paraprosdokian, a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous.
The late Yogi Berra was famous for such sayings as "If you come to a fork in the road, take it."
Now, while I could fill a column or 10 just with his material, where would the fun be in that?
So let's enjoy some other paraprosdokians of life.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit . . . Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, Notify:' I put 'DOCTOR'.
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.
To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
You're never too old to learn something stupid.
I'm supposed to respect my elders but as I grow older, it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.
And on that note ♫, have a great week everybody and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—AtP.
