Paraprosdokian - The term for a figure of speech in which a sentence or phrase has an unexpected or surprising ending. Often used for humourous effect, and thus heavily used by comedians.

Example:  “Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.”

If you were to line up all the lawyers in the world end-to-end along the equator, we'd all be better off.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Most rhymes rhyme,
But this one doesn't.

Not safe for work/school or anyone who's sense of humor is not equal to or greater than LD's.  You have been warned:  .

You were warned, although the warning probably diminished the paraprosdokian impact. 

A student of mine had this on her shirt today, "If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong."
