To The Surprise Of No One

“To the surprise of no one…” — I like this phrase a lot.

You think you will learn of someone being surprised, only to have the phrase at the end do a little twist, indicating that no one was in fact surprised.

So the phrase that tells you no one is surprised itself has a mildly surprising finish.

Yes, this is what it’s like inside my brain.

  1. Just like when you hear ” The Fact of the Matter Is “, cuz look out as a lie is next, or at the least a very small portion of the facts and alot of bullshit added for adornment.
