A Philosophical Moment - Courtesy Monty Python

Oh, this is priceless! I know I've seen it before, but its been so long I had forgotten all about it!
I'd forgotten it too, but this time my kids watched it. They're never too young to be corrupted by Monty Python.
I thought I had commented on this already. Anyway, it's hilarious. I had never seen it before.
Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
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, [some versions have 'Schopenhauer and Hegel']

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed 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,
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.

Plato, they say, could stick it away--
Half a crate of whisky every day.

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

And René 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.
Callooh - that's terrific! Is it something out there or yours?
Fantastic! Thanks!!
