Hope that snagged you.

I am here to offer tribute to the many wonderful philosophers who have blessed this mortal coil with their pontification.
Also, thank you Monty Python for the witty words and musical score.

Philosopher's Drinking Song

Immanuel Kant was a real piss ant
Who was very rarely stable,
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy begger
Who could drink 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,
Oh 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.

Eric Idle, 1973 Kay-Bee-Gee Music, Ltd.

LOL My favourite Python philosophy skit was the soccer match between German and Greek philosophers where the Germans dispute a goal with Confucius the referee


Commentator:

Socrates heads it in! Socrates has scored! The Greeks are going mad! The Greeks are going mad, Socrates scores, what a beautiful cross from Archimedes!

The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics; Kant, via the categorical imperative, is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination; and Marx is claiming it was offside

'Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota
monax materiam possit materiari?'
~Gluteus Maximus
