English sentences can be ambiguous, even in context, and this is source of much humour. I’m particularly pleased when the ambiguity relies on quite different grammatical analyses of the sentence.
Someone just shared a poster with me that said:
Doctor - “Well, it seems you are suffering from depression.”
Patient - “How much longer do I have to live?”
Doctor - “Oh, you’re going to live!”
Patient - “Yes, but how much longer do I have to?”
I drew a cartoon sometime ago that I was happy with. I don’t know whether anyone else liked it.
Player 1 (reading board game instructions) - “Firstly, roll the numbered cube, or die.”
Player 2 - “Seems harsh.”
So that’s what this thread is for…
