Happy April 1st, which I would really like to reinvent as Paradox Day
TEXT OF COMIC:
Ooh! May I steal a cookie?
But, you have to consider: Now that I’ve given you permission, your action cannot really be called stealing.
And yet– what I gave permission for, specifically, was for you to STEAL a cookie. So you DON’T actually have permission to take it WITH my consent, which would not count as stealing.
So, if you take it, you are taking it WITHOUT permission, which makes it stealing.
Which means, of course, that I DID give you permission, since stealing was exactly what I gave permission for.
Which means, since you have permission, it WASN’T actually stealing…
Mmm, paradox cookies are my favorite.
