It's a satire on Being and Nothingness

The novice asks: ‘What is being’?

The Philosopher replies: ‘it is nothingness’.

The novice: ‘is that a nuttingness’?

The Philosopher: ‘it is in fact a being and nothingness. Being has two states: one, a cathartic affirmation and an angustal negation and still it’s a nothingness’

The novice: ‘I think that being is a thingness as it cannot be a nothingness’

The Philosopher laughs and says: ‘yes, all being is a nuttingness’
