Philosophy From The Late Sony Bono

“Three hamsters are running in three wheels at the same time. The first hamster’s name is Joe, the second’s Pete, and the third’s Sally. It is uncertain which one is causing the other two to run out of sync with the ones running in sync with themselves. Which two are out of sync and why? Which one is causing the ‘sync’ issue, and how long has the problem been going on? How certain are you of your answers, and why? BTW, if you’re wrong, nothing will happen. No one will care. No wars will end. No illnesses will be cured. No stinky poop will start to smell like roses. BUT, what IS certain, is that a lot of fucking time will wasted on a fruitless exercise.” Sony Bono to Cher, circa 1972
