Bards are mocked quite mercilessly in this one:
Camus's The Myth of Sisyphus was the first work of philosophy that I read carefully from beginning to end (I did so for a first-year university course on existentialism). So I retain a certain fondness for Camus, even though my professional work has nothing to do with existentialism.
And of course I still play Dungeons & Dragons. And I like bards! Indeed, they're my second-favourite class (after mages).
