    Take time for some silly humor.......

    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 reinterpret the first part. It is
    frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing an
    anticlimax...

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

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

    3. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.

    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. Evening news is where they begin with 'Good evening', and then
    proceed to tell you why it isn't.

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

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

    11. 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.

    12. I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted pay checks.

    13. Whenever I fill out an application, in the part that says "In an
    emergency, notify:" I put "Doctor".

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

    15. Behind every successful man is his woman. Behind the fall of a
    successful man is usually another woman.

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

    17. The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good
    Ideas!

    18. Hospitality: Making your guests feel like they're at home, even if
    you wish they were.

    19. I discovered I scream the same way whether I'm about to be devoured
    by a great white shark or if a piece of seaweed touches my foot.

    20. There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so
    they can't get away.

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

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

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

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