Ontologically logical

Today I used Anselm's ontological argument to prove the existence of Odin.

Odin was very grateful.

Now what do I do with an 8-legged horse?

Edit: See Skeptico's debunking of Anselm's argument

I much prefer the ontological pizza argument. It goes like this: Imagine the most perfect, delicious pizza ever. Now, if this pizza didn't exist, it wouldn't be the tastiest pizza ever, because a pizza that exists must be tastier than one that doesn't exist. Therefore the perfect pizza exists!

Heh!

I guess the perfect pizza also has radius z and depth a (in order that it have the perfect volume for a pizza).

pi*z^2*a? Nice!
