Aristotle (384-322 B.C.E.) and his mentor (and eventual rival) Plato were perhaps the greatest minds of their age. They certainly gave us much food for thought in philosophy, politics and metaphysics, among a load of other areas of study.
But like all humans, they could goof from time to time. Plato once proclaimed that all poetry should be banned and poets thrown in prison. Gosh, what did that great master want to hide?
Meanwhile Aristotle, a very serious thinker, once pronounced this amazing sentence:
"In the beginning, no one took comedy seriously."
Ouch! What a great blooper!
(En español: bloopers = sandeces)
