your request is logically impossible. do you want something like this?

p1 : show p2
p2 : hide p1

anyway, maybe you are looking for this

$("p").hide();
$("p").show();
-->
$("p hide").hide();
$("p show").show();

You want them to toggle each other?

      $("#hide").click(function(){
            $("p#hide").hide();
            $("p#show").show();
      });
      $("#show").click(function(){
            $("p#hide").show();
            $("p#show").hide();
      });
