So this guy Socrates has this buddy, Chaerophon. Now, Chaerophon loves Socrates--but it was back in the day in Greece, so it was totally cool--so when he goes up to the Oracle at Delphi he's all, "My buddy Socrates is pretty smaart. He's gotta' have one of the best brains around. 'Hey Oracle, is there anyone in Athens wiser than my buddy Socrates?'"
And the Oracle is all, "Nope."
So Chaerophon is all, "Hey, sweet. Tanks."
So, when Chaerophon gets back into town he tells Socrates. He's like, "Hey Socrates, guess what! I just got back from the Delphi and dat brawd told me you were the wises cat in the whole city-state."
But Socrates isn't havin' it, so he says, "Nah, sucka'. Why you talkin' all that bull? I'm a fool, son. Don't you know? I've been tryin' to tell you that since we was kids."
"I'm just tellin' you what da brawd said. Gods' honest truth. May Zeus come at me when he's a swan."
"Man, you's a jive turkey, talkin' that trash. I'mma go find me someone wiser."
But Socrates couldn't find anyone wiser. There were all kinds of people that said they were wise... but then you get to talking with them and they'd be like Fredo from the Godfather. And it turned out that Socrates was the wisest in Athens, 'cause he knew he was a fool.
The story doesn't summarize me at all. I just wanted to have the greatest mind that ever was say, "jive turkey" in dialect.
