  1. As they say, there is some truth in every joke. He might not have been joking, but the fact that he was a prankster made him automatically say that phrase, regardless of whether it was a joke or not.

  2. This is similar to the” liar's paradox”, but the word” joke “does not mean”tell a lie” at all. So there is no logical contradiction. Yes, I was joking.

  3. I would say that there is not enough information to give a definitive answer to this question. Let's see what the meaning of the word prankster is. For example, in Ozhegov's explanatory dictionary, the following definition is given:”A joker is a person who likes to joke.” Based on this definition, it becomes clear that a prankster is not one whose actions are all a joke, but one who jokes from time to time.

    My conclusion is that the prankster may or may not have been joking.�There is no logical paradox in this example.
