PARADOKE CORNER - #6 Snarky 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 Snarky category:

10) "When life gives you lemons, stuff 'em down your bra and make bigger boobs."

Boob Bonus: A zebra is twenty-five sizes bigger than an A bra.

9) Some cause happiness wherever they go. Others whenever they go.

8) I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with "Guess" on it. So I said "Implants?"

7) There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't escape.

6) A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip.

5) Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4) “He was a self-made man who owed his lack of success to nobody.” - Joseph Heller

3) If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

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

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

1) “You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.” – Winston Churchill

  2. My Mother just read the above comment. She said, "It's not crude, Honey. It's common."
