Carl “CG” Jung, also known as the “Smokin’ Shrink”, was well known in the pool halls of Vienna and Zurich. He almost always beat Freud, which allegedly made Sigmund have bad dreams about pool clues and billiard balls and left him feeling very inferior.
Well, not really, or at least not that I know of. But this alleged photo of Jung and Freud shooting pool together tweaks the imagination. I hope it’s true; it’s a side of Jung one doesn’t really see or hear about.
(I am not assuming this is a legitimate photo…. I have seen it only at one website…. Check out Carl Jung’s bell-buttoms… If anyone has better evidence that Jung and Freud were pool players, please let me know.)(I’d still put my money on Carl over Sigmund any day.)
