Philosophy unplugged

Ever wonder what philosophers joke about?

They have lightbulb jokes.

They have chicken crossing the road jokes.

They do satire.

Some of their jokes, are, in truth, hard to get unless you are a philosopher. To understand how much not a philosopher you are (unless you are one), take a look at the "causes of deaths of philosophers" and tell me honestly how many of them you get.

But for the one that takes the cake, I urge you to see this trick and try to match it in your own field.

All this and a good deal more here.
