John Luke Roberts: Alain de Bottom

Work / Miscellaneous

Philosophy and slapstick come together in the preposterous Tumblr Alain de Bottom

This maybe one of the most utterly ridiculous things I have ever come across on the good ship internet and yet it may also be my favourite ever Tumblr. Go figure. Comedian John Luke Roberts has taken words of wisdom from everyone’s favourite contemporary philosopher Alain de Botton and overlaid them onto images from the much-missed 1990s slapstick sitcom Bottom. At its heart is a cracker of a pun but the images are all oddly appropriate and if you really want to you can see some comment about the conflicting places in which we seek cultural consolation. Or you can just enjoy the nonsense – either way check it out.
