"Curry's Paradoxical Combinator": A 3rd Level Computer Scientist Spell

"Curry's paradoxical combinator" (see this page) is something that occurs in lambda calculus.

It sounds more like a spell, like Mordenkainen's Disjunction (or perhaps even Tasha's Uncontrollable Hideous Laughter).

Curry's paradoxical combinator is a 3rd level Computer Scientist spell. It requires an intelligence score of at least 13.

The fact that the last name is "Curry" (think Tim Curry) also adds to the effect.

(Tip of the cap to Quentin Miller.)
