Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" was a question first asked by Plato, and later realised by some monks to be possibly one of the most perplexing questions in the history of western philosophy. Who was afraid of Virginia Woolf? Why were they afraid? Who was this apocryphal figure? These questions were debated for many long years by medieval scholars, especially those in which there were no interesting wars to fight. Eventually, Martin Luther came up with what was at the time, and for a long time after thought to be the definitive answer to this most knotty of problems. His erudite answer "Who gives a rats arse?" still remains the motto of many institutes of learning in his home country of Hunland. Modern schools of thought, rejecting concepts of dualism and classical morality, decry this answer however, preferring the even more succinct and insightful answer "English literature students".
