Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild
The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)
Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.
More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Normally I don't tend to review a lot of things I purchase, but I was absolutely heartbroken when this wallet--purchased as a Christmas gift--fell apart so ridiculously fast. As such, I felt a warning needed to be noted for other buyers, lest they similarly waste money on this.
This was purchased as a gift to replace a Tyvek wallet my boyfriend had. He's a musician, and I thought the added "drum machine" chip in this would be fun. (Think "those little things they put in greeting cards that play sounds when you open the card." Same idea.) Regretfully, this wallet is extremely poorly made, and was completely worthless just a month and a half later. Specifically:
PROS: * Fun concept * Love the little drum machine sounds, which play for ~2-3 seconds every time you open the wallet. (He used it to make up little songs/raps about buying stuff. Many laughs ensued.)
CONS: * These are made from a lighter (read: inferior) grade of Tyvek compared to...
This was a minor present for the spouse last Christmas, and I honestly think it was his favorite. At first it didn't work, then he figured out that it was light-activated. Since then he delights in finding a reason to open his wallet and play a sound clip - actually multiple times. Anyone who likes this product has more than a bit of the little kid in them.
Store clerks, friends, family members have complimented my husband on his awesome wallet.
The first one lasted just about 6 months before it started to give up the ghost. Meaning not that it stopped functioning as a wallet, only that the sound bites would not always play when the wallet opened. The spouse bravely tried to hide his disappointment but I detected a slight quiver of the lower lip. Have no fear, the story has a happy ending.
I bought a new wallet and a backup from Amazon. The spouse turned right around and gave the spare to a family member. When you see this wallet in action you...
At least, that's what my son said, when he opened this for his 10th birthday :-) I now hear "I fart in your general direction" more times a day than I'd normally tolerate, but I knew that would happen when I ordered it. It is light-activated, so sometimes it will make sounds at random intervals even when it isn't opened. Seems as sturdy as any other Tyvek wallet. My only issue is the paper to block the sound; it's hard to fit into the slot provided. However, since he rarely wants to turn off the sound, it's not that big of a deal. All in all, money well spent!
