“The phrase ‘it’s not opposite day’ is always true”

On “Opposite Day,” people say the reverse of what is true. “5th grade revelation: ‘It’s not opposite day’ is always true” was posted on Twitter on July 22, 2011. If it’s not Opposite Day, then the statement “it’s not opposite day” is true. If it is Opposite Day, then the “it’s not opposite day” is false, but it would be the correct answer because its opposite would be true.

“The phrase ‘it’s not opposite day’ is always true” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on January 25, 2016.


Wikipedia: Opposite Day
Opposite day is a game usually observed by children. It starts by declaration and rarely lasts an entire day. The game involves, that players assume, that statements mean the opposite of what they usually mean. Every action is modified, so that meaning is negated.

Sometimes, opposite day is declared retroactively to indicate, that what was just asserted had the opposite meaning of what was originally intended (similar to the practice of crossed fingers to automatically nullify promises). However, the declaration, that it is opposite day, is negated as well, implying that it is not opposite day.
