Cogito Ergo Sum

August 12, 2012

There’s this old philosophy joke that has a tenuous food connection…

It seems Descartes wandered into a Belgian restaurant to have some moules et frites. (That’s the tenuous food connection, by the way.) After placing his order, the waiter asked, “Will you have some wine with that?” Descartes replied “I think not.”

And then he disappeared.

Did you really need a Thornapple Blog right in the middle of tomato season?

I thought not, and so I disappeared.
