A Conumdrum

Only the fool would take trouble to verify that this sentence was composed of ten a's, three b's, four c's, four d's, forty-six e's, sixteen f's, four g's, thirteen h's, fifteen i's, two k's, nine l's, four m's, twenty-five n's, twenty-four o's, five p's, sixteen r's, forty-one s's, thirty-seven t's, ten u's, eight v's, eight w's, four x's, eleven y's, twenty-seven commas, twenty-three apostrophes, seven hyphens and, last but not least, a single !

So, Here's a good question, would you rather take the time to verify that the above statement is true, and possibly appear to be a fool, or would you now go though the trouble and just assume that the statement is correct and believe it.

I love tricky questions like these!
I'll probably post others here sometimes.
