A Paraprosdokian sentence is known as “A figure of speech where the last part of the sentence or phrase has a surprising or unexpected ending.” The last part of the sentence in this game should be as humorous or dramatic as possible.

Here are a few examples of famous Paraprosodokian Sentences.
  1. Where there’s a will, I want to be in it.
  2. Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
  3. She got her good looks from her father; he’s a plastic surgeon.— Quoted by Groucho Marx

Penguin123 will post the first part of a sentence.

To enter, send your entries to Penguin123 in a private message with the first part of the sentence in the subject line.

Players who have sent in a duplicate entry will asked to send an alternative entry (subject to time allowed before the final entry date). If you wish to send in more than one entry, the first one listed will be used as long as it is not a duplicate of another.
