PARADOKE CORNER - #4 Sick 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 “Sick” category:

10) The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

9) “The heart patient refused the transplant; he’d already had a change of heart.” - George Carlin

8) Some people are like Slinkies, not particularly good for anything, but you can't help but smile when one tumbles down stairs.

7) “One must have a heart of stone to read the death of little Nell without laughing.” – Oscar Wilde

6) 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. (See photo illustration.)

5) "It's too bad that whole families have to be torn apart by something as simple as a pack of wild dogs." -- Jack Handey

4) “The car stopped on a dime, which unfortunately was in a pedestrian’s pocket.”

3) “I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather. Not screaming in terror like his passengers.’ - Bob Monkhouse

2) "I like going to the park and watching the children run and jump around, because you see, they don't know I'm using blanks." - Emo Philips

And the Paradoke Corner Winner in the “Sick” Category:

1.) “I have the heart of a small boy. It is in a glass jar on my desk.” – Stephen King
