Side note: The philosopher Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) founded the ethical system known as utilitarianism, arguing that when faced with a moral choice we should act so as to bring about the greatest amount of happiness. As this cartoon strip suggests, this can sometimes lead to some odd choices. Bentham was the godfather of John Stuart Mill, who developed utilitarianism in a whole new direction.
