But maybe his philosophy is "I have not worries" about everything.

"ULAANBAATAR, Mongolia (AP) — Dalai Lama: 'I have no worries' about Donald Trump's election as U.S. president."

He's not worried he will be hustled out the back door of The White House past the garbage cans.

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-lagunga.

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 consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I always thought he was one of the most overrated people, ever. Like the Kardashians being famous for being famous, the Dalai Lama is wise because....well, he's the Dalai Lama!

They took the previous Dalai Lama's personal belongings around the villages of Tibet, and showed them to the children there. When the current Dalai Lama, as a child, saw them, he said "mine! mine!" The reasoning was, it was the previous Dalai Lama reincarnated, who recognized his stuff.

If they stop in Seattle next time, one of my sons could easily be the next Dalai Lama....

But has anyone heard from the lefty Pope vis-à-vis the Trumpster?

I have no worries about the Dalai Lama, dolly llamas or Dolly Parton.

There was a llama in Michigan named Dolly, in the 70s.

"ULAANBAATAR!" explained the drunken patron.

He must be relieved, because when you lost the Dalai Lama, you've lost Richard Gere.

I'd like to know what Alfred E. Neuman thinks about it.

The Dalai Lama walks into a pizza shop...

As I recall, the Dalai Lama in a previous lifetime hired a Mongolian Army to knock over Bhutan. That adventure didn't work out so well, resulting in Bhutan becoming an independent country. Wonder what he's up to in Ulaanbaatar, talking to the descendants of Ghenghiz Khan and his brother Don.

In other words, "I got bigger fish to fry than white, limousine liberal expressions of fear and worry."

'They took the previous Dalai Lama's personal belongings around the villages of Tibet, and showed them to the children there. When the current Dalai Lama, as a child, saw them, he said "mine! mine!"' I might prefer that to our elections.

It's always fun to ask leftie fans of the Dalai Lama if they know what he thinks about gay sex. His doctrine on gay sex is exactly the same as the doctrine of horrible homophobic people like Pope Benedict XV, but the Dalai Lama puts it much more crudely: "Wrong hole!"

No taking Dolly Parton's name in vain . That is Smokey Mountain Rule. And it
Is real smokey this week

Dalai Lama: "I have no worries' about Donald Trump's election as U.S. president."

Are you sure that was a quotation of the Dalai Lama and not Alfred E. Neuman?

robother said...

Also, Ann, don't think that your "I have not worries" mocking of the Dalai's pidgen English is a micro-aggression unnoticed. You will pay, if not in this lifetime, in the next.

There once was a llama named Dolly
Who thought earthly striving was folly
She lay down in the grass
Like she’d run out of gas
And unconsciously hummed, “Hello, Dalai!”

I've been to UB, interesting city, but would not like to be there in the winter time. Way too cold.

Or maybe Hello, Dali!

It's really not all that deep.

It is hard to be the nominal, but deposed leader-in-exile of a nation, I would think.
When one is serious, one may not be taken seriously. After all, deposed & in exile, right?
When one is happy, one may be criticized for not being serious, for the same reasons.

I expect that the next Dalai Lama will be found in Tibet by a concerted effort involving the Chinese genocidal invaders of Tibet, who will use their "discovery" to further destroy the culture, and quite literally, the people of Tibet.

"Not worries" - a little micro aggression? As I'm sure the Chinese would confirm, the Dalai Lama is alt-right.

SukieTawdry said...

They aren't making Dalai Lamas like they used to.

Dr Weevil said...

"It is hard to be the nominal, but deposed leader-in-exile of a nation, I would think." I hope Hillary will remember that, and not even try to assume the role.

Jesse Ventura once met the Dalai Lama and the first question he asked him was if he had seen Caddyshack. The answer was no.
