Well, I’m getting sick of everything these days, Fox News, Candidates, Ossetia, Olympics, MSM, you-name-it, so, I went and looked up some humor. Here’s what I found under Philosophy Jokes (so, I’m not sick of philosophy yet I guess):

Seen on a restroom wall: “God is dead: Nietzsche.
Nietzsche is dead: God.”

* * * * * * * hey, who ya gonna believe, huh?

Descartes walks into a café and sits down ready to order.
A waiter comes up to him and asks, “Do you need a menu?”
Descartes replies, “I think not,” and he disappears!

* * * * * * *Poof! That’ll teach him to be a dualist.

Overheard in 18th century England: “Did you hear that George
Berkeley died? His girlfriend stopped seeing him.”

* * * * * * *Taking “seeing is believing” too literally?

What did the Buddhist say to the hot dog vender?
“Make me one with everything.”
What did the hot dog vender say when the Buddhist asked for his change?
“Change come from within.”

* * * * * * *Yeah, try to find it!

Did you hear about the Buddhist who spilled his coffee while driving to work?
He had bad kar-mug.

One of my morning reads to capture the news and find out what’s going on in the world has always been Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo. He’s got a great post this morning on the hysteria of the neocons over the Russian response to Georgian troops invading Ossetia. Here’s the closing paragraph of this short four paragraph read:

Watching the Bennetts and the Krauthammers get all jazzed up about Georgia as the new Afghanistan, with all the painfully awkward nostalgia and excitement of an 80s era Gilligan’s Island reunion flick is entertaining. But much less so when you realize these jokers might be running the government in six months.

Of course McCain is right in there with the rest of them, championing them in fact and sending his surrogates to Georgia. Well, we’ll see whether the whole thing doesn’t blow over in a couple weeks. I’ll come back here then with an update!
