Argument from analogy

A ninety-year-old man went to his physician and said, " My eighteen-year-old wife is expecting a baby."
The physician said, " Let me tell you a story. A man went hunting, but instead of a gun, he picked up an umbrella by mistake. When a bear suddenly charged at the man, he picked up the umbrella, shot the bear, and killed it."
The 90-year-old guy said, " Impossible. Somebody else must have shot the bear."
The physician said, " My point exactly!"

..... this little gem is from a wonderful book: Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar... understanding philosophy through jokes, by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein.
( Penguin; 2007)


  1. Philosophy jokes are always the best. I think my degree was one.

  2. Madame-- ha! great comment.
    this book is a treat.... I am hoping to mine it for a few more goodies.
