Word created and defined by Scott Adams

"Philosophy for the sole purpose of entertainment, not enlightenment"

"It doesn’t try to be right, or further our understanding of reality. In fact, the best arguments of philosotainment are clearly wrong, but no two people can agree why. Sorting it out is the point. The fun of philosotainment is in finding out something about your own thinking compared to your fellow humans. The particular topic of discussion is nothing but the vehicle for that journey."
"My first commercial philosotainment was my book, God’s Debris. The readers that understood what it was usually enjoyed it. The philosophy majors who wondered why it didn’t further their understandings of the universe were literally furious."

The art form first used to great effect by Socrates and leading to his death, this invention of Scott Adams (author of "Dilbert" comics) is the art of
"asking humorously provocative questions that are designed to make your dogmatic friends (turn into a) showcase of dancing monkeys...It’s evil, but it’s fun. I call it philosotainment."
"I told a dirty joke at the party, and Alice got all sanctimonious on me. So I asked her 'if she's such a good Christian, shouldn't she forgive me?'"

Oh, so -that's- what made her trash the living room!"

Yep: that was some good philosotainment, there."
