Paraprosdokians are those crazy phrases where the first sentence makes a statement, and the next phrase changes the meaning in an unexpected way. Thanks to Jean Hart Stewart for these. 

Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.

The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it’s still on my list.

If I agree with you, then we’d both be wrong.

We never really grow up. We only learn how to act in public.

War does not determine who is right. Only who is left.

They begin the evening news with ‘Good evening’. And then tell you why it isn’t.

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