The adventures of Thomas Aquinas!

This cartoon is abit more silly than normal, and was really just a nod to one of my favourite past-times: foraging. I'm a particular fan of anything you can make out of humble weed: and can often be found knee-high in nettles collecting ingredients to make soup, pesto, and most importantly BEER!

 Anyway, while looking for recipes for Dandelion and Burdock, a traditional British soft-drink that tastes a bit like American root beer, I found this alleged story of its origins....

''One notable example has it that St. Thomas Aquinas, after praying for inspiration for a full night, walked from his place of prayer straight into the countryside and, "trusting in God to provide", concocted the drink from the first plants he encountered. It was this drink that aided his concentration when seeking to formulate his theological arguments that ultimately culminated in the Summa Theologica.[2]

And then I slightly extrapolated on this, using my own special brand of infantile humour. haha! 

The absence of both Being and Tim in this cartoon makes me feel the need to compensate with a arbitrary link. Here's one my friend sent to me about Nietzsche's horrendous musical compositions. Poor guy, I mean, can it be that bad???!

Listen here to decide, and leave me your comments, especially if you make it to the end!:
