Wisecracks (Posted on 2015-08-12) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Paraprosdokian is neither an Armenian writer nor a football coach but a figure of speech characterized by an abrupt change of direction at the end.

Some samples:
◾Two wrongs don’t make a right—but three lefts do. - (driver's remark).
◾Now, you take my wife . . . PLEASE! — (Henny Youngman).
◾If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.

Add some paraprosdokians, original preferred.
