457.172 Sometimes I am struck by the mechanical appearance of people riding on my bus, and this sensation becomes the expression: “I am going to vomit on my shoes.” We may find it queer that the expression “I am going to vomit all over my shoes” can have the quite the same logical exactness as “What you gon’ do with all that junk? All that junk inside that trunk?” Some philosophers may not understand this. (Philosophers are wankers, so to speak)

This reminds me of the time I read some Wittgenstein and almost had a stroke.
