My favourite was Aristotle he told us many great things such as how women are just demented men and how the solar system revolves around the earth

I think Ayn Rand is a pretty cool guy. He thinks all poor people are freeloaders and doesn't afraid of anything.

Ayn Rand was a woman, as well as a hypocrite who died on welfare, but yeah Ayn as in "Anne".

For me though it'd have to be Bruce Lee, and if you say he isn't a philosopher you haven't read his works. Interesting enough, it's his birthday today. Try reading "Tao of Jeet Kune Do".
"The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering."

If anyone says Franz Kafka I will punch you in the throat.

Machiavelli, not because I have any idea what his philosophies are about but because I have a shitload of inside jokes about him that make absolutely no sense

I might go with Confucius on this one, he has a lot of useful advice, but there are a lot of other great philosophers.

"An oppressive government is to be more feared than a tiger." - Confucius

"Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do." - Voltaire

"Is man one of God's blunders? Or is God one of man's blunders?" - Friedrich Nietzsche

"Men create the gods in their own image." - Xenophanes

"He has the most who is most content with the least." - Diogenes

"You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is 'never try'." - Homer Simpson

Joseph Campbell helped put a lot of heavy shit into perspective for me...and thanks to him, I hardly worry as much as I should.

Plato, because his name sounds like Play-Doh, which is clearly evidence of his ability to prophecize

Just kidding. Allegory of the Cave FTW.
