Please read the Discussion Board Rules before participating in the discussion boards.
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.
MM David littlefair XI will post the first part of a sentence.
To enter, just post your entries on the board with the first part of the sentence in the subject line.
Fortnightly, assuming there are enough entries, a poll will be set up so that you can choose the one you like best.

It actually is.
You finish off the start of a familiar phrase, such as this one which we can use for a group re-finishing:
