Two tigers and a philosopher

One day a philosopher was passing through a forest. He encounters a tiger with a tiger cub calmly lying down with their chins touching the ground. The tigers see the philosopher and offer a very dumb look. The philosopher says, “Look at yourselves lying down with absolutely nothing to do, no clue of what’s going on, not good enough brains to think, leave aside thinking about thinking, merely existing.”

The tiger blinks and the cub blinks twice. He continues speaking contemptuously, “Does your species even ask questions like – why do we exist and”

The tigers ate the philosopher.
