*Paraprosdokians ...*




A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a
sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the
reader or listener to re frame or reinterpret the first part.
It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect, sometimes producing
an anticlimax.  For this reason, it is extremely popular among comedians
and satirists.
