Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

Okay, this is just hysterical. I bought this as a gift for someone else, but I have to say I'm amused. I like finger puppets and buying them for kids, plus I like magnets so this thing is just right up my alley. It seems made well enough, and the magnet really does work well to keep it up somewhere. I really can't say how educational this thing is--nothing came with it to explain who Benjamin Franklin was, so any adult giving this to a kid might want to be creative and fun in explaining. I can see, however, how this puppet, along with some other presidential and other historical puppets, would be great for a teacher.

My daughter collects these and was pleased to add this to her collection. I think they are priced a little high for what they are and how small they are, but nice little collections.
