When You Find A Contradiction In A Book, You Cannot Trust It

You know how it goes: You’re reading a book, and it says something, and a couple of pages later it says the exact opposite, so you can’t trust anything it says at all.

For example, today I was reading Simms Taback’s Great Big Book of Spacey, Snakey, Buggy Riddles.

And one riddle is:

And a couple pages later, another riddle is:

Both of these things cannot be true.

Wake up, sheeple! This is how they break down the minds of your children: By presenting riddles that compel your child to hold two contrary ideas in mind at once and/or to not recognize or object when two opposing assertions appear and are presented as TRUE!

Or maybe I take things too seriously. Or lack a sense of humor.
