PARADOKE CORNER - #5 Irreverent 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 Irreverent category: 

10) Lent was tough. I gave up Catholicism.

9) “If only God would give me a clear sign, like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss bank.” - Woody Allen

8) If there is a God, why are there things such as famine and daytime TV?

7) “There but for the grace of God, goes God.” – Winston Churchill

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

5) I asked God for a bike, but knowing He doesn't work that way, I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

4) “They cancelled Easter this year. They found the body.” -- George Carlin

3) “If you are going through hell, keep going.” -- Winston Churchill

2) “If we talk to God we’re said to be praying, but when God talks to us we’re said to be schizophrenic.” -- Lily Tomlin

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

1) “I think we should all treat each other as Christians. I will not, however, be responsible for the consequences.” -- George Carlin

  1. Deeply bent Phil. Started my Friday off on the right note, but deeply bent nonetheless.

  2. Beats riding your motorcycle in the snow. Yeah, twisted.
