Philosophy and Drinking

The Philosopher’s Drinking 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 Friedrich Hegel,

And Wittgenstein was a beery swine

who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.

There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach ya

’bout the raisin’ of the wrist.

Socrates himself was permanently pissed.

John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,

after half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.

Plato, they say, could stick it away,

‘alf a crate of whiskey every day!

Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,

and Hobbes was fond of his Dram.

And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart:

“I drink, therefore I am.”

Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;

A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he’s pissed.

— Monty Python
