How jokes are like philosophy: "Part of the delight, part of what you laugh at in a joke is your own acumen. You know, a part of what’s delightful is that you get it, you know? And so when somebody tells you a joke and you have that split second when you finally get it, it brings out a response of delight in you, because you’re just so delighted with yourself that you got it. Well, that's part of the appeal of philosophy too." 

If only every ukulele cover of The Beatles were this incredible...then maybe I'd listen to more ukulele covers...

A Truly Badass Saint Writes a Poem that Applies to Your Life:
"On The Sabbath" by Thomas Aquinas

On the Sabbath try and make no noise that
goes beyond your

Cries of passion between lovers
are exempt.
