EXCITEMINTS

Here are some more tempting tins of minty mischievousness...

Firstly, a useful aid to theatre-going - especially if it's the uncut version of Hamlet...


And for anyone - like Hamlet - grappling with an Oedipus-Complex, here's a handy aid - whether you are a Freud or a Freudee...


And for those intimate momints that may well get discussed 'on the couch'...




Why buy a packet of Polos (itself a sweet with Freudian undertones) when you could hand round a tin of these?

So, where to acquire them, you ask? The answer: from The Unemployed Philosophers Guild where you will also find many more witty and irresistibly silly items such as magnetic finger-puppets of famous philosophers, writers and scientists not to mention Pavlov's Dog and Schrödinger's Cat - the former with a bell that doesn't ring and a total absence of drool, the latter clearly both dead and alive...*



You can visit The Unemployed Philosophers Guild in complete confidence knowing that, as the disclaimer proclaims: No philosophers or artists were harmed in anyway in the making of this website.

* Here's some useful background information for those needing a reminder about Pavlov's Dog and Schrödinger's Cat and what they got up to.

Wow - that's quite a selection on their website. I wonder if they are making a mint out of it.

Oh boy, oh boy! This posting should have a health warning... I've just looked up Schrodinger's cat... Trying to read about quantum physics when you've only just got up in the morning is enough to send you back to bed!

LISAH - And, guess what, I'm not even on a percentage... :-(

SUZANNE- Yeah, I know, but the ability to use quantum physics to sell a cuddly toy does have to be admired... :-)

You forgot the ones we bought in Amsterdam last year!

With a picture on the tin of George W Bush they were simply called: 'Embarrassmints'!

Not sure whether EMBARRASSMINTS are still available, but you can get tins of hopefully-named George W Bush IMPEACHMINTS!
