Daily Updates on Michael Jacksons Health Condition : I like how Socrates was actually offside.

mario1997281 : Gary Lineker said that football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win. I guess he was wrong.

Croyles : "Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside."

painkiller346 : Marx is the only one claiming for the material conditions

Dhruv Golani : "Beckenbaur's inclusion is certainly a surprise"

Malek Jendoubi : "... And Marx says it was offside" I lost it ...

rogerpenna : Why is Mars playing on the RIGHT wing? Grave mistake from coach Martin Luther! No wonder Marx, a clear left winger, was not playing well on the right.

Friedrich Nietzsche : This is so embarrassing! I was dreadful!

Brandon Nakagaki : love my philosophy teacher for showing me this

Hhutuber : Marx is right, it was clearly offside!

Exequiel Ortega : Marx was right

Dan Brown : This is what made Monty Python so special, gratuitous nudity one minute and highbrow sketch on philosophy soccer the next LOL.

Alangme : "and Marx says it was offside"... how can't I love this scene for god's sake?

777Outrigger : "Nietzsche has just been booked for arguing with the referee. He accused Confucius of having no free will. And Confucius, he say, name go in box."

Antharis79 : Aristotle, very much the man in FORM!! Simply brilliant ^^

Pineapple Farmer : After Life of Brian, John Cleese took part in a discussion with some christians, who said that "You wouldn't make fun of Socrates the same way you make fun of Jesus", to which he promptly responded "Maybe I will, maybe there's something funny about him."

avril14thlove : Okay this is absolutely hilarious for philo majors. 

Adam Fitzgerald : "..and Confucius he say, name go in book"

troikagirl : Both of those teams would beat England!

Jovalin : Karl Marx might be the best part of this entire thing.

Windows Sux : It seems like the 70's took away all the intelligence and humor in the British TV shows and never gave it back ..

WiseIsWise : No wonder the Germans lost, they're playing Karl Marx on the right wing.

PhDInsomniac : Just finished watching Epic Rap Battles of History with East v. West Philosophers and I was immediately drawn to this gem. Nice try, EpicLloyd and Nice Peter... You have a very long way to go before you can reach the humor and depth of the gentleman of Monty Python...

Sigusen : The brilliance of this is amazing!

vonArschloch Justus : and Marx was right. it was offside, but the struggle goes on

pancon5 : That crisp triangular passing in the end was surely the work of assistant coach Pythagoras.

William Heywood : Marx was correct, Socrates was offside.

Snakey Engel : "Beckenbauer obviously a bit of a surprise there..." cracks me up every time! Playing Marx on the right wing, Confuscious with his hourglass, Marx arguing for an actual offsides - it's just layer after funny layer of genius humor that's miles beyond anything in the last 30 years. BRILLIANT!

Ali ahmad Pasoon : Arsene Wenger got his footballing philosophy from this sketch!

craigtucker69 : Kierkegaard played an individual sport

TSM8088 : This was the greatest match since the English faced the Greeks in the Poet's Cup.. Byron's goaltending was beyond romantic!

zagor1974 : Marx was right, it was offside

Ex0dus111 : Did anyone notice the Greeks scored on themselves?

Lieutenant Ivan : I bet Sarte was injured in the finals for France.

ghjlkhl : Marx was right, it was offside

Diana Cedeno : Marx claims it was offside, lol

seanie002 : The goal was definitely offside. Eventually, Karl Marx did get something correct.

RandallFlaggNY : Epicurus  organized the victory banquet.

Bruno van Simon : omg where has this been all my life?

Sylo : ''And Marx was complaining that it was offside'' XD

ElaborateTiger : I'm surprised Beckenbauer didn't do anything because he isn't a philosopher.

GuntherL1 : "and Confucius say: name go in book." The sad thing is that the BBC today would probably ban this joke because they think it's racist.

J. A. Antón : How is Leibniz during the goal (2:49) in the left side of the goal and during the replay (3:24) in the right side, even after the principle "Natura non facit saltus"?

Amber Puga : Hegel arguing the reality is merely a priori 

james maw : If only this had gone to penalties.

Delph Zouzou : Beckenbauer is lost during all the game, haha..

Jim Holroyd : ..and marx claims it was offside :)

Maciej Żuk : How did Beckenbauer not do what he was supposed to do and make an offensive run from his half to engage in his team's attacks is beyond my understanding.

PrinceAndrew100 : My all time favourite Python sketch, nothing better, absolutely brilliant.

Timothy Gaede : I was reminded of this sketch when watching footage from the 1982 World Cup. Brazil's captain was Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira, or simply known as Sócrates.
