So there’s a good chance you’ve not heard of this before, but if Pinokio said the statement “My nose will grow now” is would be a paradox.
Think about it… his nose would have to grow to make Pinokio’s statement not a lie, but then it can’t grow otherwise the statement would not be a lie.
This paradox is famously known as “Pinokio’s Paradox”. If you know of any more like this one, let us know in the comments section below!
Also, to solve the debate on how his name is actually spelt. ‘Pinokio’ is generally the English way of spelling it, where the American’s spell it as ‘Pinocchio’. Hope this solves the confusion!
