Greeks 1, Germans 0

You probably saw this already.

It was running like wild-fire through the net last week. Several philosophers sent me the link in the same morning.

I played it in my Ancient Philosophy class the next day, saying that I hoped it would sway students who were still undecided as to whether to enroll in Ancient Greek Philosophy or German Idealism.

Of course I mean the famous Monty Python skit about philosophers playing soccer. It's very funny and worth looking at again if you haven't seen it in a while.
