Friday Five | Just Chatting

Paraprosdokians: The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

Friday Five at Fat-Bottom-Fifties Get FierceParaprosdokians (now that is an impressive word to throw around) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence is unexpected and makes you laugh a bit! We thought we’d send you on to your weekend with a smile on your face. Check out the list below – be prepared to chuckle!


1. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak. (This is my personal favorite!
)


2. They begin the evening news with ‘Good Evening,’ then proceed to tell you why it isn’t.



3. I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you. (Kind of tied for personal favorite).

4. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.



And Finally… 

5. I’m supposed to respect my elders, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one now.    -M

    1. You and me both – M is going to have to say it to me a couple more times s-l-o-w-l-y I guess. Even though I don’t know how to say what they’re called, I want to come up with such sayings myself! -El
