"Do Not Follow the Ideas of Others, but learn to--Oh, I'm sorry. I need to take this call.."
or peace and harmony in the modern world

Okay, so today on our little local dog and pony morning show, we had an honest-to-goodness Buddhist Monk as a guest. He was really, REALLY cool. Calming voice, welcoming demeanor, embracing all things spiritual and corporeal without prejudice or judgement.

He came to the station dressed in his beautifully flowing orange monk's robe, signature shining bald Buddhist head and... his iPhone.


Yeah. He had an iPhone. A Buddhist Monk... purveyor of peace and harmony... teacher of compassion and wisdom... gentle guide to being one with the universe...

Has an iPHONE!!?!

I don't know if it is Karma sanctioned, but I think it had an app for navigating through his past lives. Can't you just hear the commercial now:

"Say you need the quickest route to enlightenment. Yeah. We got an App for that."

"Whaddup, Dog?"
