Life is pain. Statues are transient. Police are stupid.
 
2004-12-27 05:05:39 PM  
Ha! Nice headline.

That headline pushed me over the precipice into the void of nirvana. Bravo Submitter
btw how does a $68.000 materialistic idol to someone help your karma?
 
2004-12-28 06:54:48 AM  
which is nice.
 
2004-12-28 07:00:23 AM  
Once you realize that the statue was never lost and never found you have reached enlightenment.

Well, for starters, you no longer have $68,000 lying around.

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one---big hitter, the Lama---long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I'm pretty sure I saw it at a hot dog cart outside my office. Guy walked up at lunch and said "make me one with everything".

Great headline. Used to be that alt.zen was the funniest newsgroup out there, IMHO, but now it's polluted with a bunch of junk.

Example of a funny alt.zen exchange:

Joe Newbie posts: What is Zen?
Responder posts: Zen is the untrained mind asking, "What is Zen?"

To reach nirvana, you must first clear your mind.

If my mind is empty, how will I know if I'm doing it right?
 
2004-12-28 07:59:56 AM  
Whats so great about Zen? They dont have a Zen Olympics. There isnt a Zen breakfast cereal.
 
2004-12-28 08:09:15 AM  
Nice job on the headline

For 12inchpianist:

doing nothing

I'm pretty sure that if I sat around on my arse for four months, I'd probably weigh just as much as buddha.
 
2004-12-28 08:24:09 AM  
I have to laugh.
 
2004-12-28 08:30:59 AM

If its beauty puts your mind at piece or in a state of mindfulness. Unlike the Golden Lotus with center Swastika lit up with dancing LED lights did for me last week.

2004-12-28 09:15:00 AM  
Adding my polite applause to the golf-clap chorus for the headline...
 
2004-12-28 09:15:00 AM  
Police know nothing

Then they are already on the path to understanding.

Hey, Lama, howabout something, you know, for the effort.

On the deathbed one receives total unconsciousness.

2004-12-28 01:22:48 PM  
I bet you get a free bowl of soup with that headline!
 
2004-12-28 01:31:07 PM  
The answer is obvioulsy that a pound of flax or a shiat stick stole the Buddha.

Yet another Kudos on the headline.

Ong Bak and Jackie Chan in Drunken Master 3? Combined, they can rescue a thousand buddha statues.
 
2004-12-28 02:22:15 PM  
Which is why buddah was a preacher and professional enlightenment seeker rather than a cop.

Kudos on the headline. Genius.
