A non sequitur is a conclusion or reply that doesn’t follow logically from the previous statement. You’ve probably heard an example of a non sequitur before, therefore bunny rabbits are way cuter than chipmunks.
Non sequiturs are often used for comedic effect in movies, novels, and TV shows. When someone says a non sequitur, it usually means the person was off in her own thoughts and not listening to the other person . If one girl says, “I’m worried he might break up with me, I don’t understand why he listened to her” and her friend replies, “I wonder what you call a male ladybug?” the non sequitur shows the friend clearly wasn't listening.
