What not to do when you meet a living saint?
On a live morning news show in Australia last week, the host told the Dalai Lama: “I have a joke for you, that my son told me, that he said you would laugh at, even though it’s about you.” So here’s what happened:
Trouble is, the guy’s so dumb you don’t even cringe for him. Something tells me Dalai got the real joke. (A longer version is here, with him sweetly trying to comfort the idiot.)
What’s interesting in the longer version is that the host is reduced to sitting there looking like the dumb kid he is — and probably for the first time, he’s aware of it. Could this be Buddhism in action?
