The Statement

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

There's an explorer exploring an island. A group of cannibals capture him. They can't decide how to kill him for trespassing, as no one has done it before. So the cannibals decide to give him his final statement. If it's true, they'll burn him at the stake. If it's false, they'll cut off his head. If it's not a statement, they'll drown him. What does the explorer say that'll make the cannibals let him go?
