MAKING YOUR LIVING FROM PURE DAWGY POOP | 2004-03-20

A documentary on a cable channel showed the following real-life scene from a monastery in Tibet

Some young monks come up, one by one, in front of a group of Older Wise Men. Each young monk shouts something like, "What is the meaning of humility?"

The Wise Old Sage shouts back something like, "the lotus grows in green pastures!"

Each young monk then shouts out, "Thank you for your valuable answer!"

This happens over and over.

Since these men are all Orientals, the documentary took all this seriously.

If the men had been white, we would have said, "Good Lord! I can't believe grown men are doing this!"

I find it all embarrassing. Just because these guys are Oriental does not make them animals to me. But that rule does not apply to the guys making the documentary.

And every person making the documentary says he is a complete anti-racist.

If a bunch of white people were doing this crap in California, we would all get a good laugh out of it.

There is another difference between this retarded behavior in Tibet and the same childish nonsense occurring among whites in California. In California it would be a fad. In Tibet this is a full-time job.

In California nutcase garbage like this is harmless. Whoever does it pays for it. Tibet is starving. These well-fed Great Wise Sages are eating food denied to hungry children, as do the young monks.
