Lard Baron 3468 points 2 months ago - When I was young my father said to me Knowledge is PowerFrancis Bacon I understood it as Knowledge is power France is Bacon For more than a decade I wondered over the meaning of the second part and what was the surreal linkage between the two? If I said the quote to someone Knowledge is power France is Bacon they nodded knowingly Or someone might say Knowledge is power and I'd finish the quote France is Bacon and they wouldn't look at me like I'd said something very odd but thoughtfully agree I did ask a teacher what did Knowledge is power France is bacon meant and got a full 10 minute explanation of the Knowledge is power bit but nothing on France is bacon When I prompted further explanation by saying France is Bacon? in a questioning tone I just got a yes at 12 I didn't have the confidence to press it further I just accepted it as something I'd never understand It wasn't until years later I saw it written down that the penny dropped dreamergirly I weep bcause I think I hardly ever read anything funnier Meme
