Today, class, a philosophy lesson.

I actually had nothing much of interest to say today...okay, actually I do, but owing to time constraints I will have to save it for another day.
I decided to share with you the song that I woke up with this morning. In my head, I mean, not on the radio. Could have something to do with the fact that I watched some of my favorite Monty Python sketches last night.

Ready? Now raise those beer mugs up high, and sing along!
Monty is nothing if not educational.

Immanuel Kant was a real piss-ant
who was very rarely stable

Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
who could think you under the table

David Hume could out-consume
Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.

There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach 'ya
'bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed...

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
after half a pint of shandy was particularly ill

Plato, they say, could stick it away,
half a crate of whiskey every day!

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
Hobbes was fond of his Dram...

And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart~
"I drink, therefore I am"

Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;
A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he's pissed.

Thank you and good night!
