may have to look twice

The artist Raphael did frescoes for the Pope’s quarters in the Vatican at the same time Michaelangelo was doing frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. One Raphael fresco included the philosophers Plato and Aristotle.

We were fortunate to see this fresco when we were in Rome so that’s why I love this joke:

If you don’t get it, picture Plato on the left spinning a basketball on his raised finger and Aristotle on the right dribbling with his outstretched hand.
