Additional Information

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

The label on the candle is very poorly made. It's so poorly made that it arrived as shown in my attached photo, with letters/text rubbed away/deteriorating. I ordered a second in case I just got a fluke, but the second one had the same problems. I tested with my fingernail to see how well the design is imprinted and, as I suspected, the text just rubbed right off. This is incredibly poor quality and I would not recommend this product to anyone.
For substance this gets a full 5 stars. Saint Vonnegut is my favorite in the world, and I only wish he were still around. The world needs people like him.

The missing star is because the candle wrapper has a pretty significant air bubble (between the glass and the wrapper) that spans about half the height of the candle. It's not noticeable from far away, but up close it is.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. I actually ordered two different styles and not only did they arrive together incredibly fast (I placed my order yesterday morning and received them this afternoon) but they are packaged very well. I was worried how they'd do with shipping, but the company did a great at making sure they were snug in their own individual boxes. The quality is beautiful. I'm so excited to gift them on Christmas!
