“A beard does not a philosopher make”

Cleaning up the old t-shirts, I forgot this one!  The post title refers to the line on the bottom of the shirt.  (Perhaps should be cross posted at Cloven, not Crested?)  I think the other line means ‘No razor is sharper!’, but I could be wrong…  The dude sort of looks like David Letterman!

    Not a propos the tee shirt [which is cute–I’d like to have one!] but your reference to ‘Crested, not Cloven’ intrigued me, being a rabid Elizabeth I enthusiast so I found the pertinent web site. It looks interesting but defunct now. One of the things I like best about the Elizabethan period is that they called a spade a spade and that it produced Shakespeare, who not only called a spade a spade but did it with unparalleled genius and style.

    BTW, is it meaningful that the guy on the tee shirt is wearing a yarmulke?

    When you can tell who posted something due to content like this– i thought: RON!– i know the day is good. Ron, what a tee. Keep that one, or send it to our turtle:0).

    For those who favor inductive proofs, there are always Occam’s Tweezers – somewhat slower paced and occasionally painful.
