What would happen if Pinnocchio said "My nose will now grow!"?

You guys can stop the circlejerk started around the election. It stopped being funny faster than Mirza's anti-American rants. -Jonbonbon

Do you think Pinnocchio looks down his nose at others?

Infinite loop.

It would probably also be kind of painful for poor Pinocchio.

His nose only grows if he lies. Not all untrue statements are lies; some are mistaken, or hypothetical. It would depend on the context behind him saying his nose will grow.

His nose does not shrink as soon as he tells the truth, and since the phrase is a n infinite loop that includes "this must be a lie" an infinite amount of times, his nose would grow infinitely long.
