Looking at things in unexpected ways

-A A +A
By Robert Villanueva

A friend of mine forwarded to me an email with a list of paraprosdokians.

I wasn’t familiar with the term, either. It kind of sounds like a debilitating disease.

Typically, a paraprosdokian is a sentence or phrase in which the latter part is surprising in a way that makes the reader or listener rethink or reframe the earlier part. Apparently it is a term that hasn’t found its way into the dictionary but is said to have been coined possibly in the 19th century.

One example is the following: Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
