I’m in a bit of a weird mood today.

So, according to Lives and Opinions of the Eminent Philosophers, which was written by Diogenes Laërtius in the third century, Plato once said that a man was a featherless biped, and Diogenes the Cynic brought a plucked cock and said “Here is Plato’s man.”

And that has become a bit of a Tumblr meme.
