EMPIRICUS

Hey, Philosophicus!  You should stop worrying about abstract issues of philosophy and commit yourself to the real world so you can solve its problems.  While you are wasting your time pondering questions like “what is a species” I am running to keep actual species of animals from becoming extinct by direct mail campaigns, fund-raising, picketing, and writing my local congressman!

EMPIRICUS

Medium-sized donkey.
