The History of Philosophy From the Perspective of Chicken Enchiladas

Thales, 500 BC: "Wait a minute, what the heck even are chicken enchiladas? They are probably just secretly made of water or something."

Plato, 300 BC: "Chicken enchiladas aren't even real, man. What's real is the concept of chicken enchiladas."

Hume, 1750: "what if we woke up tomorrow and chicken enchiladas no longer tasted good? Shit, that would freakin' suck, man."
