Aussie Diplomacy

An Australian TV presenter tries out an old Buddhist joke (that you've already read here if you've been with me since 2005 -Icons passim) on the Dalai Lama and hilarity ensues.

It seems to me that His Holiness doesn't know what a pizza is, which puts me in mind of his contribution to the Tiger Woods affair. Revealing, in response to a question, that he had never heard of Tiger Woods was probably the only comment I heard that put the whole sorry mess in context.

Having eaten my way around the world, I suggest that it would in fact be on walking into a noodle shop for a thenthuk that the Dalai Lama would ask Mr Ping to make him one with everything.
