Stalkers and paraprosdokians


The risk of being stalked was the starting point for my chat with Jim Mora on Critical Mass this afternoon.

It was prompted by three posts by Brendan Moyle at Chthonic Wildlife Ramblings, starting with avoiding stalkers online.

We moved from there to paraprosdokians at Eye To The Long Run.

Next stop was White Sun of the Desert where we found phrases commonly heard but not to be believed in little white lies.

Hat Tip for that goes to Quote Unquote which is where we finished with a guest post from Graeme Lay on New Zealand English.
