jokes that kill poets

 

Monty Python in the seventies did a tv sketch called “The killer joke”. Now I wish remembering that the jokes are a long habit in ancient Greek culture.

The danger of jokes has been subject of essays by Sigmund Freud in the modern western culture. But not anything like what happened to Homer the old Greek poet.

Here it is the joke:

It was sunset and Homer was sitting to the edge of the promontory looking at the boat of the fishermen coming back home.
‘How is the fishing?’, said Homer.
‘The things that we caught we thrown overboard. But we bring with us the things that we have not caught ‘, said the fishermen.
Homer the poet was brooding thinking about the solution of the conundrum. Days after days but no solution. Finally Homer the poet was so shocked and disappointed not being able to solve the puzzle that he died.

not less than six

Hard times for British Monarchy. The crow of the Tower of London is dead. He was the legendary guardian of the Monarchy and from initial reports it seems that a anti-drug dog has killed the crow.

 

This is a serious crime because the number of crows in the Tower must be six , if they are less than 6 it happens that the Tower collapses in association with the Monarchy.

 

This event happened on sunday 27 august 1995. That morning the spaniel called Charlie was on patrol near the Tower and he killed Charlie, ironically the crow had the same name as the dog. In a hurry the dead bird was substituted but not before some hours. Hence for some hours the crows in the Tower of London were five.

 

A spokesman for the royal palace with aplomb said,’We have two replacement crows. Quickly we have promoted one of them as guardian’.

missed link

 

Friday May 29 1992.

A small monkey weighs one kilo and has a a long tail. 50 millions years ago he was living in North Africa in the shrub vegetation that nowadays it is an arid location called Algerian desert.

Jean-Jacques Jaeger, a researcher of the University of Montpellier, discovered the fossilized body of an ancient monkey as the missing link between Man and Great Apes. The remains of the small monkey are of 15000 years ago.

This monkey was an evolved animal since the disappearance of the Dinosaur, about 66 millions years ago. At that time the ancestors of this little monkey were like a rat eating insects.

Then the subsequent generation liked eating fruit and leaves and helped by the long tail he jumped among the trees.

human blood in plants

 

News from the early ninetiens of past century.

 

If you cut a vegetable it is possible that comes out blood. Blood in this context does not mean human blood but protein that is in human blood. This event is based on the progress of genetic engineering.

Limagrain is a french corporation global leader in the production of seed. This corporation makes a deal with the regional centre of blood transfusion that is located in Lille in order to produce engineered plants with human gene. The derivative human proteins is a molecule of albumin, the blood coagulant.

An advantage of this experiment is the production of plasma without the danger of viruses for human people.

an excursus in an anthropological politics close to anthropological philosophy

 

Autumn 1997.

Is Ted Kaczynski a schizophrenic or a criminal ? The man (55 years old) called “Unabomber” is now under process. A jury in the United States will be the audience of his answers regard his behavior during eighteen years during which he sent sixteen letters bomb exploding. He created a climate of fear in the States.
The trial began in Sacramento (California), the defense attorney of the former mathematics professor (Berkeley) pleads for the mental infirmity in order to save the life for his client. Theodore has become a hermit in his struggle against the computers.

Very uphill battle for the defense because in the States every behavior against the establishment, the actions anti-system is severely punished. Further problem is that Kaczynski refuses meeting with the psychiatrists.

Unabomber is accused for murder of three persons and injured twenty-three. The State’s attorney describes him like a radical extremist that hates everybody and everything relates with civilization : traffic noise, computers, pollution. Briefly he hates everythings conflicting with his view of the world.
