Greece: 1, Germany 0: An Oldie but Goodie in Honor of the World Cup

Well, that was something! Germany did not let me down. Just a little walk down memory lane until we get caught up here, courtesy of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

  1. Aristotle, very much the man in form!

  2. Not just form but substance, too, combined in one. And this is no accident. It is a reflection of his excellence and virtue (cultivated by diligent habit, of course).

    (Forgive the punishment.)

    Aquinas in the short pants characteriologically above the knee? I personally don't see it.

    • Yeah, and Augustine too!

    • It's a soccer . . . er, "football" referee thing, helpful in supporting the narrative. (Having the philosophers dress in the same way - in shorts- would have clearly lost the visual comedic appeal.)

    Where is Zeno or Epicurus they were not on the Greek side.

    I was just logging in hoping for more negative ratings since I'm failing in this echo chamber and I land on all this philosophical garbage I don't get...

    I never understood how Greece ever got the inertia to advance. Germany is the technology country and the Germans have always been the go getters.

    Please someone hit me with a negative so I can feel normal here.

      If you insist: I don't know why they keep Plato. He's a shadow of his former self.

        Perhaps, but Plato is still essentially a good player.

    I have kept this skit on my computer for years. I go to it when I need a lift.
