Come now Jaime, clearly this was not a question  of Socrates, but a question he may himself been asked.

All indications from his sentencing point to the deliverance of the question, "one lump or two Socra"? You see? His real name was 'Socra' and he would have several teas at sundown, hence his nickname, 'Socrates' as in "Socra teas at sundown with many fair maidens".

I beg your further indulgence to correct the error. You owe him at least that much. After all, that's where the phrase, "taking one's lumps" comes from.

Yeah, I could Jaime but our resident 'whistleblower' would rat us out. What they don't understand intimidates them. As if that's not enough, ancient Greek characters always appear to be fornicating...so you see my friend, we've played it out.

"ancient Greek characters always appear to be fornicating"

That's a really weird observation if you are referring to the letters and not the ancient Greeks themselves! Good question though Mr. Goose!


Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...
