Aphorisms

It is impossible to experience one's own death objectively and still carry a tune.
The universe is merely a fleeting idea in God's mind -- a pretty uncomfortable thought, particularly if you've just made a down payment on a house.
Eternal nothingness is O.K. if you're dressed for it.
If only Dionysus were alive! Where would he eat?
Not only is there no God, but trying getting a plumber on weekends.
It seems to me that it was Woody Allen back in the 70s who perfected the ludicrous aphorism that juxtaposed existential angst with the most parochial of observations.

That said, https://twitter.com/KimKierkegaard - in which the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard mashed with the tweets and observations of Kim Kardashian - is carrying on the tradition with some style:
All feel the dread of being alone in the world, overlooked by God. A pop of red gives your look a boost & helps you feel more confident.
