This sentence has three As, two Cs, two Ds, nineteen Es, six Fs, two Gs, five Hs, ten Is, two Ls, twelve Ns, nine Os, five Rs, twenty six Ss, sixteen Ts, four Us, four Vs, eight Ws, four Xs, and two Ys.
How many other similar self-referential statements can you come up with (there exist a relatively small finite number of possibilities)?
Hmmm... well let me just flip through my little Hofstadter booklet...
No no, I'll try to work one out on my own.
There will be a dozen places on the net where these sentances can be found. Can we all attempt to work them out without using other people's? Anyone can do a search...
