Can't Expect the Unexpected

Just don't even try expect anything, read on…
Basically a prisoner is told by a judge in court that he will be hanged next week but the day of the hanging will be a surprise. The prisoner realizes that if he wakes up Saturday morning and finds himself not dead, then he can't be hanged that day because it would not be a surprise. By induction of course, he then eliminates Friday and so on for every day of the week.

But come Wednesday he was hanged — much to his surprise — as the judge promised.
