I was chasing links through Wikipedia the other day, which always leads somewhere interesting.
In this case I fell into the deep waters of linguistics and learned about garden path sentences. They caught my eye in particular because the article includes one of my favourite jokes, albeit with a slightly different construction to my usual one.
"If time flies like an arrow, do fruit flies like a banana?"
Now that I've read a deconstruction of the joke, it seems a little less funny though.
