"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

I totally get this.

Jean Paul Sartre was sitting at a French cafe, revising his draft of Being and Nothingness.  He says to the waitress, "Un café, s'il vous plaît, no cream."  The waitress replied, "Pardon Monsieur, we are out of cream, how about with no milk." - Geek Jokes

Oh how I laughed!

I really did.

It's really a dumb joke, isn't it.  However, if Sartre didn't want cream he would have known to simply order "un cafe".  Although if he was drunk, he might have ordered "Un café crème - but no crème."  Then mademoiselle might have replied, "No crème? Then no lait either."


I know, I know - it should have read, "Un café crème, sans crème".

Maybe not.
