I'm linking with Jenny Matlock for Alphabe-Thursday and this week the letter is 'P'.
Paraprosdokian - try saying that fast three times! This is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected.
* Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
* War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
* To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.
* If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
And, guess which famous figure loved paraprosdokians?
