FTIW: Pinocchio Paradox

Found this picture of an interesting paradox:

Pinocchio Paradox

The picture illustrates the “Pinocchio Paradox”. Apparently it was first suggested by an eleven year-old girl:

According to the wiki page, this paradox is a version of the liar paradox which goes like this: “This statement is false.”

The liar paradox is fun because with such a simple statement, it breaks down logic showing how both something can be true and false.
