    I’m sorry, but I’ve missed the punchline. REALLY! Unless the third panel is trying to make a quote (like “dunk rye for me, Arch and Tina”), I’m not catching it.

    If Stephan makes a pun in the forest and no one read it, did he really make a pun?

    I Kant name any more than one philosopher at a time. One of the reasons I messed up on Jeopardy when they had the “Philosophers” Category.

    Corey Mohler will now probably feel forced to break his streak of no Kant/can’t puns. Way to go, Stephan.

    To quote Derek & Clive: “Who you callin’ Kant?”(Very rude; only funny for Cockney speakers.)

    In proposing to treat here of puns, the first thing I want to make clear to you is that there can be a difference between our sensation of puns (i.e. the idea that is formed in our imagination) and what is in the words that produces that sensation in us (i.e. what is in the word or in the name that is called by the name of “pun”). For, even though everyone is commonly persuaded that the ideas that are the objects of our thought are wholly like the objects from which they proceed, nevertheless I can see no reasoning that assures us that this is the case. On the contrary, I note many experiences that should cause us to doubt it.

    But if Descartes and Kant spend too much time at the pot dispensary in Denver, who would want to see a Philosopher Stoned?

    Oh, Stephan, I’ve been doing a “Descartes before the horse” pun for 40 years. And I stole it.

    In class: “Mr. Smith, please name at least one well known philosopher.”

    Smith: “Professor, I can’t.”

    Prof: “Very good, Mr. Smith.”

    Goat told Pig to put his books on oceanography on the top shelf and those about calculus on the shelf below. Pig was incredulous. He said “What? Lei-bnitz the sea?”

    But if medical books go first, then he is actually putting the “Hoarse” before “Descartes”. Stephan???

    Just because you’re showing off your literacy doesn’t make your wretched double-pun palatable, Cartoon-Boy!

    Goat’s books, indeed! Everybody knows he just devours them!

    The Marx of a great cartoonist is to have a Locke on your puns. This is definitely not a run-of-the-Mill strip like those other Thoreau away strips.

    Suspension of belief just failed. No way a booklover like goat would let anyone else sort his books.
