We do realise that up to now we have almost no comics featuring non-western philosophers. Just to be clear, this isn’t because we actually support the erasure of non-western philosophers from the history of philosophy. It’s just that for some reason it’s much easier to make jokes about Plato than it is to make jokes about Franz Fanon. We’re working on it.

In our own defence, we have have been recommending The Book of Tea on the Amazon widget for about two years now. On that topic, have you ever thought how a mule deer is also a bit like a glass of water, in the sense that the highest state of being is that in which we have made ourselves like an empty pitcher into which the world may freely enter, thereby becoming a zen master of all situations? I sure have.
