    "When I get up in the morning I just can't get started until I've had that first hot pot of coffee. Oh, I've tried other enemas."



    That quote from Emo Phillips is an example of 'paraprosdokian phrases', whereby the ending of the statement makes the reader/listener rethink the first part.icon_wink.gif

    Another: "I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me!"icon_cool.gif

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    I'm not going to post any...because it seems a few guys have already found the source for them.
    I had no idea that there were soooo many, nor that there was even a word to describe them.

    I like this one...

    "There's a fine line between cuddling and holding someone down so they can't get away. "

    LOL. Right up there with the line between "massage" and "groping."

    Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

    Outside of a computer, a porno-mag is man's best friend. Inside of a computer, it's too cramped to masturbate.
    -probably not Groucho Marx

    NOW I KNOW WHY MY EYES WATER EVERY TIME I HAVE SEX......................ITS THE MACE !!!

    I considered adding to the gay thread... Then I realised that the 'gay' prefix was entirely superfluous; straight sewing is an oxymoron if ever there was one =]
