Sam deadpanned: "A paradox shopuld not consist of an unsophistocated oxymeron?? If I know what an oxymeron was perhaps I could answer you better ;)"

Oxymeron ? I'm having enough trouble trying to figure out what "shopuld" means. It is appalling that this little exercise in logic chopping is up to 15 replies, and the vastly superior "Breaking the Bank" (by the same author) never got past five replies by two individuals, only one of whom solved it. It shopuld be just the opposite, shopuldn't it ?
