    Heres the riddle

    A man was to be sentenced, and the judge told him, "You may make a statement. If it is true, I'll sentence you to four years in prison. If it is false, I'll sentence you to six years in prison." After the man made his statement, the judge decided to let him go free. What did the man say?

    He said "My Kingdom is not of this world." You see the man was indeed Super Mario himself. The King decided to let him warp to his own world and Mario made his exit at the nearest green pipe.

    The King had a split personality. He had his other half on trial. Therefore he played Nintendo 64 until the cows came home.

    N.B. By "N64" I mean "PS2" - and - By "cows came home" I mean "ducks came home."

    "I always lie"

    or

    "You will sentence me to six years in prison"

    True = 4years
    False = 6years

    Thus True + False = 10years.

    I'm sticking to my Super Mario theory. Everything else is flawed. With a passion.

    He said "I am rich and will give you $10000000 if you let me go free"

    This is clearly the correct answer.

    He said, "You'll sentence me to six years in prison." If it was true, then the judge would have to make it false by sentencing him to four years. If it was false, then he would have to give him six years, which would make it true. Rather than contradict his own word, the judge set the man free.

    Why wouldn't the King just give him 10years for being true and false?

    because he would rather give him a 1up and make him fight kupas

    I havn't scrolled down. I think he said "I'm going to prison for 6 years"

    If the judge sentences him to 4, then he was wrong, and it should have been 6, but if he sentences for 6, then it was true, and should have been 4.
