Technically, wouldn't it still be nothing?

Unless you go by logic, which says that it would be the opposite: EVERYTHING

Something to do with fascist repressive government conspiracies, consumerism or sheeple?

What is greater than God and worse than the Devil; dead people eat it; and when living people eat it they die a slow death?

Best response so far.

But yes, "nothing" appears to be the correct answer.

Are you constantly eating? What I don't understand is how the dead live if they eat nothing.

Nothing is the answer to the proper riddle which I gave, but no idea what Gokuma's point is with his "inverted version". It certainly doesn't take the opposite answer, everything.

I think Gokuma has written the question wrong. It's supposed to be "What's greater than god, worse than the devil, the dead eat it, and if the living eat it they die?". All apparently inverted for comedy effect.

He's probably just trying to make our heads explode

Ah, I see. I thought the "nothing" response was in answer to the original riddle.

"Anything" works slightly better than "everything."

If the dead eat anything they come back to life? Awesome. Just a shame that the dead are incapable of eating anything, I guess.

actually, after thinking about it for a minute, the best answer is in fact "something"... literally.

It's inverted, right?

I think I once heard someone say something like this quoting Ambroce Bierce's "The devils dictionary".
