Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

What they don't teach you in philosophy class

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable,
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could take you under the table.

David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel,
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.

There's nothing Nietszche 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 whiskey every day.

Aristotle, Aristotle was a buggar 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.

Rene' Decaete, was a brilliant Mathmetician, and necesarily memorized his math as he surely studie
in the classical manner, else, a genius who needed not study as others, how could t e beginings of calculus have come from a drunkard, I say he may have partaken of wine, maybe even been inebriated at times but I reject the idea that his work was that of alcoholism.
