Plato and Platypus Walk into the Law Library (and a caption contest)


This book has kept many of us laughing:

Plato and Platypus Walk Into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy through Jokes,” by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein. And they have a caption contest – oh boy!

Legal research angle? (I promise, there is always a legal research angle to every post of mine.)
1. You might learn what existentialism and epistemology really are, and every lawyer needs to know that.

2. Doesn’t everyone have a favorite job-related joke? And doesn’t every law librarian have at least one funny story told by a lawyer patron? Such as this, overheard (really!) at a lawyer funeral:

Minister: “He’s going to a place where all questions will be answered.”

Lawyer whispers to her friend: (in all innocence I have to presume modestly), “He’s going to the law library?”
