Ceci n’est pas une pipe

This cartoon is just fun. “This sentence is false” is of course an exercise in circular logic: if the sentence is indeed false, then wouldn’t it be telling you the truth by telling you it was false? And if the sentence was true, then wouldn’t it’s declaration of falsity render it untrue?

It’s kind of similar to the famous “this is not a pipe” painting by René Magritte.

Chuck isn’t the brightest tool in the shed, and attempts to reconcile what is unreconcilable. Hilarity ensues. End scene.

I thought this would be a good one before finals because this is the time of year when all of us are feeling our most intellectually inadequate. I know I have a lot more studying to do before I feel ready for my finals!
