Yes, it reminds me of an Oxford Philosophy Tutorial in which an experienced professor takes apart an undergraduate's glib position and shows how it might be put back together.

'Tis that I may not weep."


Well, actually I learned that from an old DC comic in which Alfred explained to Bruce Wayne what Elongated Man meant by his cryptic reference to Canto IV of Don Juan, but the sentiment still holds.

"What Fools the mortals be," as, I think it was Puck, said in A Midsummer's Night Dream. Business is as fertile a source of metaphors as agriculture.
