Utilitarian Limericks

Wenn man bei dem Dreckswetter schon für alles andere zu müde ist, kann man
sich im Seminar wenigstens Limericks ausdenken:

There once was a man named John Mill
Utility gave him a thrill.
Calculating, he would
Declare murder good
(Depending on whom you will kill)

There once was a utilitarian
Who was an outstandingly merry man
"My bill may be rising,
But I keep maximizing –
Now bring me another sherry, man!"

One evening, Professor Singer
While cooking, cut off a whole finger:
"Great, some meat for my diet,
Without causing disquiet!"
What a morally flawless left-winger

(Hier gibt es sogar
eine ganze History of Western Philosophy in Limericks)
