HUMOR GETS LOST IN TRANSLATION >>>

You know those jokes where a minister, a rabbi and a priest walk into a bar?

These days, it's a bit more up-to-the-minute (and probably more relevant in Western Washington, where relatively few people attend church) to joke about the Dalai Lama.

To wit, this example found on the Internet:

"Why can't the Dalai Lama vacuum under the sofa?"

"He has no attachments."

Or this head-scratching example notable chiefly for taking His Holiness into a drinking establishment:

"The Dalai Lama walks into a bar. The bartender sees him and yells out, ‘Hey, haven't I tossed you out before?'

"The Dalai Lama says, ‘Probably.' "

And here's a picture of another sort of Dali Llama.

However, by far my favorite joke about the Dalai Lama is this one told by a newsman to the Dalai Lama himself.
