GENERAL FRED: Have the doctors made any progress on finding an epiphenomenal cure?

SCIENTIST: They've tried every placebo in the book. No dice. Everything they do has an effect.

GENERAL FRED: Have you brought in a homeopath?

SCIENTIST: I tried, sir! I couldn't find any!

GENERAL FRED: Excellent. And the Taoists?

SCIENTIST: They refuse to do anything!

GENERAL FRED: Then we may yet be saved.

(Context: epiphenomenal zombies.)

Also, apparently Daniel Dennett teaches at Tufts, so I can walk over there when lecture season starts and find out why he gets to ride up on a white motorcycle.
