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 our first in a series.

Light travels faster than sound; some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

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.

(Our thanks to Nub News reader Geraint Pugh for this idea, and contribution)
