It behooves a Domini Canes to bark... Good, St. Thomas

Happy Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas! To celebrate, here are my top ten suggestions:

10. wear black and white
9. begin all disputations with "Sed contra!"
8. compliment deserving friends with "how angelically doctoral of you!"
7. go to Mass
6. resist the temptation to turn your classmates' positions into straw men.
5. Give your best friends nicknames consisting of improperly capitalized nouns (eg, "The Philosopher," "The Commentator," "The Theologian")
4. enjoy your food and drink
3. send a pack of whores packing
2. start all of your best points with a Patristics reference
1. realize that, in the end, all of this is but straw.

Despite the angelically doctoral nature of this post, it is but straw in the end ...
