PARADOKE CORNER - #3 “Too True” Paraprosdokian Top Ten

Paraprosdokian, two phrases, the second changing the meaning of the first, usually in a funny or humorous way. The Paradoke Corner top ten in the “Too True” category:

10) You don’t need a parachute to skydive. You only need one to do it again.

9) Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.

8) Why do Americans choose from just two people for president and 50 for Miss America?

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

6) When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department uses water.

5) "Save a little money each month and at the end of the year, you'll be surprised at how little you have." -- Ernest Haskins

4) “She was a girl who preferred men to liquor.” Sheeze. Talk it out.

3) To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

2) Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut and still think they’re sexy.

And the Paradoke Corner Winner in the “Too True” Category:

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

Next in the Paradoke Corner:
The “‘Sick’ Top Ten” category is right up Stephen King’s alley.  (Go!)
