Everyone loves a twist ending. That's why we're still going to M. Night Shyamalan's movies after all these years. Who could forget the shock of finding out that (Sixth Sense spoiler!) Bruce Willis was dead the whole time?! Now we've gotten to the point where if a movie doesn't have a twist ending, it's honestly a little disappointing.
It's completely natural for humans to have certain expectations, but you can never assume everything's going to go the way you think it will. Expectations and reality are often complete strangers. Sometimes that can be horrifying. Other times, it can be downright hilarious. (And yes, sometimes it's a mixture of the two).
In my opinion, some of the best jokes around are ones with twist endings that you don't see coming. You can't help but laugh through your shock.
And so, I found a bunch of them on Twitter!
Get ready to be both surprised and delighted.Or maybe you'll hate these stories, who knows?! That'd be a real twist.
