Grelling's Paradox is the paradox which results from considering whether heterologicality, the word-property which a designator has when and only when the designator does not bear the word-property it designates, is had by "heterologicality".

way too trippy for me at 10 a.m.

Grelling's Headache is the headache you could get from pondering that one before the coffee kicks in. Grelling's Demise is what happened when Grelling, having failed to enunciate his Paradox in a fashion until now clearly distinguishable from the better-known Liar's Paradox and Russell's Paradox, died like everybody else, not knowing the end of his own story.
