a picture is worth a thousand german philosophers

my onkel eric took this picture at a bookstore in chicago where the philosophy section containing authors beginning with "h" were marked off with caution tape. a very helpful warning. i often lose my mawma for hours when she gets hypnotized by big tomes with "hegel" on them. it's dangerous stuff. and the others---habermas, heidegger, husserl. rubbish, all of it. the only "h" you need is a hound. more wisdom is to be found in the experience of rubbing our bellies than in your books. i can find greater meaning in the master (me) - slave (naked ape) relationship than any long-winded german. i need to compile my insights in the phenomenology of pets, a dogology of everyday experience.

and my friend mr. glenn--i believe this is a special warning for your habermas lovin' self. get while the gettin's good.

Why do they torment themselves by reading? All they need to do is pet me and everything is answered!

At times like this, I think it is important to remember the truly monumental contributions of thinkers such as Hegel and Heidegger. I think Monty Python said it best in "Bruces' Philosophers Song."
"...Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable

Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table

David Hume could out-consume
Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel."

Yeah Wally, you've got it right. The only reference h they need is a hound.

And philosophadogs rule, with no need for caution tape.

As I wrote in my Thursday, June 15, 2006 dogpost (with props to Descartes):

I eat, therefore I eat.

Chow for now,
