The Coach and The Cell Phone

ref  After a basketball game, the coach found a cell phone on the gym floor.  He picked it up and handed it to one of the referees, saying, "Here's your phone." 
"What makes you think it's mine?" the ref
asked.  "Easy," the coach replied.  "It says you
missed 13 calls." 

coach That’s all for today..

Paraprosdokians & The Back Roads of Ohio

MQTlogoa A “Sunday Drive” post.

“A paraprosdokian /pærəprɒsˈdoʊkiən/ is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence, phrase, or larger discourse is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part. It is frequently used for humorous or dramatic effect.”

JOETODD  I drove up to the one stoplight in a nearby town today and saw the entire police force (2?) with lights flashing, I studied the scene. On one side of the street, men are throwing straps over a semi load of hay. Further down 3 men are rolling one huge bale of hay down the street. "Wow!"  "I'm glad I quit drinking. Look at the tests they're giving now."
