The Rapping Philosopher


Overheard in the caravan:

Hay and I are both ill with colds or flu. Caravan was having lunch at The Dog pub yesterday and phoned Hay to ask if we’d like him to bring us some soup from The Dog.

Hay: “Caravan just phoned to say he’s bringing us some soup from The Dog.”
Chairman: “Soup Doggy Dogg?”

Here’s a word from beyond the grave by Bertrand Russell about the British Home Secretary’s sacking of his chief scientific drug advisor, Professor David Nutt.

  1. Hope you both feel better soon - sounds as though you are being well looked after (although Dog Soup sounds a bit harsh...)

  2. I bet the British Home Secretary doesn't even know who Bertrand Russell is (was). Who IS the British Home Secretary, by the way?

  8. I am getting really confused. I thought you lived in a caravan. But the caravan talks to you and phones you up! Are you suffering from fever? Do you hear voices? Do you think that long-dead philosophers speak to you from out of the grave?

  9. Graja: Nutty.

    Lee: Precisely.

    Alan: The Caravans are Hay's parents - because they lived in a caravan for 7 years while building thir house. Dead people speak to me all the time - like my boss.
