Puppet paradox

From here.


Stuart says:

This is perhaps the best version of the liar's paradox that I've seen, because it has real effects in the world (Pinocchio's nose really does grow when he lies). I think it helps show up the problems with the 'paradox', though, in a Schroedinger's Cat kind of way. That is, Pinocchio's nose will either grow or not grow, collapsing the paradox.

I think it won't grow, because I don't think he's actually 'lying' here. He's playing a whole other game. His statement is neither true nor false — he's just trying to create a logical paradox.
