Philosophy Jokes – About Philosophy Degrees, Majors, Students and Philosophers

Philosophy Major and Philosopher jokes page.  Philosophy is a degree for the thinking man.  For the most part it makes a person think about why they have no money in their wallet or why they still sleep in a bed shaped like a race car in their parents home. As far as being able to think about and solve the problems in todays society… not so much.

America needs to create jobs, advance industry, increase productivity and become more competitive in the world economy. There are hundreds of great degrees that can help us in this endeavor. Philosophy is not one of those degrees.

If you are a girl and looking for a husband then philosophy is perhaps a good way to kill time while trolling the local bars. If you are a guy, keep in mind that one day you may actually get a date and if your date has low self esteem then she may want to marry you. I know it sounds unlikely but remember that we put a man on the moon in the 60’s so a philosophy major getting a date is not that far fetched. My point is this. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO SUPPORT A FAMILY!! Get a real degree like Engineering, Economics, or Business Administration. Go on and get your MBA and go out into the world and grab a little piece of the American dream.

If you have already finished your Philosophy degree and are out of money for real college then why not try this? Sorry, I am drawing a blank.   I got nothing.

A philosophy major was job hunting and went here, there and everywhere in his search for a job, but in vain. Having run out of options, he swallowed his pride and took up the offer of playing a bear in a costume at a carnival. He was locked up in a cage, where he was supposed to imitate various bear-like movements to entertain visitors.

To his horror, another bear appeared in the cage and started approaching him. He panicked and was on the brink of collapse when the bear said: “Don’t be afraid. I am a philosophy major also.”

A philosophy professor walks in to give his class their final examination. Placing his chair on his desk the professor instructs the class, “Using every thing you’ve learned in this course to prove to me that this chair DOES NOT EXIST.”

Time goes by, and the day comes when all the students get their final grades…and to the amazement of the class, the student who wrote for thirty seconds gets the highest grade in the class.

He wrote “What chair?”

Bubba and Buster, decide that they will go to college. Bubba goes first, and he is advised to take maths, history and philosophy.

“What’s philosophy?” says Bubba.

The professor answers “It is the study of logic.”

“Whats logic?”, asks Bubba.

“Well, let me give you an example,” says the professor. “Do you own a tractor?”

“Sure do,” says Bubba.

“Okay. Then I assume, using logic, that you have a yard.”

“That’s real good,” says Bubba, in awe.

“Logic also tells me that since you have a yard, you also have a house. Is that right?”

“Amazing!” says Bubba.

“And since you own a house and a house is tough to take care of by yourself, the odds are that you have a wife. Right?”

“That would be Bobby Jo! This is incredible!”

“Finally, since you have a wife, logically I can assume you are heterosexual. Is that right?”

“You are absolutely right! Why that’s the most fascinating thing I have ever heard of. I can’t wait to take this philosophy class!”

Bubba, proud of the new world opening up to him, goes back into the hallway where Buster is waiting.

“So what classes are you taking?” says Buster.

“Math, history and philosophy,” says Bubba.

“What in the world is philosophy?”

“Let me give you an example,” says Bubba. “Do you own a tractor?”


“Then you’re gay.”

How many philosophers does it take to change a light bulb? Lets think about that. First, define light. Also, who says the light bulb needs to be changed? Also, why is light superior to darkness? And tell me, how do we know that we are even here? Isn’t this reality that we see just a misguided frame of reference with the light bulb being our reason for existence. And in its absence do we not truly discover what it means to exist. ANSWER – shoot all the Philosophers and call a plumber.
