The Consolations of Philosophy

I'm not sure if I prefer Schopenhauer or the great E L Wisty. It's a toss up between Wisty's ruminations on the evils of macism and old Schopes musings on romantic love. I'd quite like to have them both round to dinner as it would be a great privilege to witness the dialectical sparks fly as these two great minds tussled over the nature of philosophical truth.

I don't know a great deal about philosophy, but I would have made a good Epicurean as I'm fond of my grub.

It's a very sad indictment of Britain today that single men walking in public parks, or using the benches there to enjoy their lunch, are being interrogated as to their intentions by overzealous council officials. All in the name of child protection of course.

But that's it isn't it? You're not allowed to enjoy solitude and contemplation any more because people think you're up to something. You're not allowed to think any more, or heaven forbid, express your thoughts if they don't conform to what is demanded by our politically correct, controlling society.

Polish yoghurt pots?

We need immigration controls. It's about time someone stood up for the rights of proper Muller Fruit Corner eating British folk.

I like to mull over my failures by a bed of lobelias.

Yoghurt's another conspiracy. You ever noticed how it always splashes on you when you open it, leaving a nasty white stain on your clothes?

Like pigeon shit?

That's due to the difficult to remove tinfoil lids, which have troubled me.

Sniffy said...

And plastic ones. It's done on purpose of course. You have to put enough pressure on the carton as you prise off the lid, just enough for the contents to ejaculate all over you as it bursts off.

'The Ejaculating Lids'

Crikey, can I play drums?

Sniffy said...

So long as you let me have a go at the bongos and tambourine.

But Schopenhauer's will to life idea doesn't really ring true with us queers, does it? Certainly not with me. I fucking hate kids and I think people who have them and who want them are off their heads.

I use a PC myself.

Does anyone have any tips for removing "yogurt stains"?

Sulphuric acid, MJ.

Works a treat. Quick too.
