Perhaps the Ultimate Platonic Dialogue

By Nathaniel Daw:

Quentin Tarantino's REPUBLIC DOGS: Socrates: My humble little idea goes something like this. [He is suddenly extremely loud and violent. Roars:] Justice is only the will of the stronger. What do you think about that, a--hole? [Slaps Thrasymachus across the face with his gun]

Thrasymachus: Uh, uh, uh ...

Socrates: Come on... come on, you wanna try and disprove my theory, you weak little s---? Yeah? Yeah? S---, I think I feel a proof coming on. [Shoots him.] Why, thank you Thrasymachus, you've certainly opened my eyes.

Narrator: Thrasymachus. Alcibiades. Aristotle. Socrates -- are Quentin Tarantino's Republic Dogs.
