Whom is that drawing supposed to depict? Is there any being in the whole Universe who finds it funny? Aren't you done with serious caricatures yet?

The tragically funny clown is a common stereotype.

The ancient mathematician built a state-of-the-art abacus to replace his old set of counting-stones.

Daily dining at McDonald's might be the quickest way to undernourished obesity.

The Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation is based on a metaphysical materialism derived from the idea of 'substance' in Greek philosophy, as opposed to the physical materialism that underlies the modern scientific sense of 'substance'.

The Sun King kept an autocratic eye
On all his nobles gathered at Versailles.
That cynosure of Gallic royalty
Made upstarts show reluctant loyalty.

Very true.

Entering the Guinness Book of Records for the most eggs eaten in an hour is a rather ridiculous achievement.

About one year ago we explored the area near the active volcano on the Reunion island, le Piton de la Fournaise. The rains of ash out there left a layer of what looked like grey tropical snow.
