The Proof that P: Jokes in Philosophy

This is my first post using Windows Live Writer, and I must say it’s an awesome and incredibly efficient way to publish my posts right from my desktop! 🙂
Anyway, as a test post, I decided to have some philosophy-type jokes. The first one below about the cows I recently read on an Objectivist blogger’s site. I can’t remember who and which site, so if you’re reading this, please let me know so that I can link to your page.
The other jokes are taken from this page compiled by David Chalmers.
Two cows were lazily grazing on the green, rolling hills of a country-side. Just then, the first cow looked at the other and asked, “What are your thoughts on the mind-body dichotomy? Do you think it’s true?”
The other cow looked up and answered: “Moooooo!”
The First Law of Philosophy: For every philosopher, there exists an equal and opposite philosopher.
The Second Law of Philosophy: They’re both wrong.
If metaphysics is being qua being;
and if epistemology is knowing qua knowing;
then metaphilosophy must be… qua qua qua.
