Lion and Unicorn II.
Posted 27 June 2007 - 03:49 AM
The lion lies every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the other days he speaks the truth.
Lion said: Yesterday I was lying and two days after tomorrow I will be lying again.
People are expecting the lion to be telling the truth in this statement, when in fact, the only way to make the statement true, is to assuse that what the Lion is NOT speaking the truth. (Take everything the Lion says to mean the opposite.)
The answer is Monday
He was actually speaking the truth yesterday (Sunday) as well two days after tomorrow(two days after Tomorrow [tomorrow being Tuesday] is Thursday), therefore.... Today is Monday, a day that the Lion lies!

However, Why does the puzzle include a Unicorn as he plays no part.
I think I more interesting question would be:
Which day did the lion say this, and did the Unicorn agree with the lions statement?

And I think they throw in a unicorn and days he lies and tells the truth to throw the people off because they will look to deeply into trying to get the answer. The question was only about what day the lion said the statement, which clearly has nothing to do with the Unicorn.

I have to agree with rookie1ja.
The lion said the phrase in one sentence. It mean that he can say that sentence on a Tuesday.
Consider me a liar.
I didn't eat the pig yesterday infact i'm eating it right now.
In reality I'm not eating a pig right now so it means that the sentence is false.
Does this means that I eat a pig yesterday ????!!!!

What does the unicorn have to do with this?
