who shaves grilly?

grilly explaining 'russel's paradox' to rachel.

i was actually trying to use my favourite example, 'grelling's paradox':

divide the adjectives in english into two categories: those which are self-descriptive ('autological'), such as "pentasyllabic"... and those which are not ('heterological'), such as ..."bisyllabic". autological is clearly itself an autological word.
is heterological?

paraphrased from hofstadter.
