The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. A few accounts trace the Guild’s birth to Athens within the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, a number of lesser philosophers grew weary of the unending Socratic dialogue endemic of their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, although lively debate surrounds the query of whether or not it was once a “disappearing” chalice.)
Celebrates six immortal literary figures who are as famous for their drinking as they are for their work.
Each shot glass features an illustration of the author along with a memorable quote about drinking.
Featuring Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde, Dorothy Parker, Winston Churchill, W. B. Yeats, and Charles Baudelaire.

Others argue that the UPG dates from the Top Middle A while, when the Philosophers Guild entered the sector of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed till 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Now not surprisingly, this resulted in increased sales, at the same time as half our membership was once burned on the stake.
More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was once still cool to reside in New York Town’s Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the folk’s wishes for finger puppets, heat slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.
