Paraprosdokians — Twists, Ironies Used As a Concluding Line

A fellow poet asked, “How are
your paraprosdokians doing?”
I wondered how he knew I had
just visited my urologist.

My wife, looking down at my typing
on the computer, said, “You have
a very large font there.” I said,
“Thank you, dear. Chalk it up to
healthy paraprosdokians.”
