The answer to last week’s challenge is. Q: Professor Frink was trekking through a remote jungle when captured by logic-loving cannibals. He was brought before the Chief and told, “You may now speak your last words. If your statement is true, then we will burn you at the stake. If your statement is false, we will boil you in oil.” The Professor thought for a moment then made his statement. Confounded, the cannibals realised they could do nothing but let him go. What did he say?
A: “You will boil me in oil”.
