The Fool in the Forest

Let us have a frank discussion about your intelligence. No…don’t be afraid. I have good news! If you are reading these comics, you have already passed the I.Q. Test with flying colors! For it has been found that those who enjoy comics are usually above average in intelligence. This is according to a recent study conducted somewhere, most likely.

And, since you are so smart, wrap your head around this: I can safely say the phrase, “Anybody who doesn’t like comics, or is not reading this article is an utter fool”. Nobody can be offended because at the very moment you read that phrase, you are instantly rendered non-foolish. It reminds me of the sound in the forest conundrum, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Now consider…”If an utter fool is insulted in an article that the utter fool didn’t read, is the utter fool still insulted?”

I assume that you are one smart cookie, so I know that you won’t tell any utter fools about this article. And even if you did, and they read it, then they too will have been rendered non-foolish. It seems that I have inadvertently stumbled upon a philosophical loophole.
