Saturday's Sting in the Tail

Paraprosdokians - Winston Churchill loved them, they are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous. Enjoy the second in our series.

I didn't say it was your fault; I said I was blaming you.

In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, notify:' I usually put 'DOCTOR'.

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.
