Sure, the Dalai Lama is a being of infinite wisdom and compassion who is the living reincarnation of the Buddha. But does he get jokes? Hells no he doesn’t. Here he is being interviewed on the Australian “Today Show.” Anchor Karl Stefanovic starts telling the following joke to Mr. Lama — “So the Dalai Lama walks into a pizza shop…” he says. Cue a completely baffled reaction by the spiritual leader:
So, that didn’t go over that well. But c’mon, man! “Make me one with everything.” That’s a good one, right? Jeez, this guy is more like the Dalai LAME… a. …Amirite? …No?
Anyway, according to always-reliable YouTube comments, the Australian anchor left off the actual end of the joke. Take it away, YouTube comments:
the REST of the joke is,,,, after? handing the clerk a $20 bill against his $12.00 tab, the Dalai Lama says, change plea[s]e. the clerk replies,”” change must come from within””
See, that was the whole problem here. The dude just didn’t tell the whole joke! There you go. Mystery solved.
