I’ve got something odd to ask, Your Holiness…

August 4, 2009

Blog Guy, I’ve watched patiently as you’ve provided fantasy shots for a lot of readers with very little imagination. Now I’m going to put you to the test.

Very big talk, from a guy who writes in italics!

I want a photo of the Dalai Lama.

Jeez. I can get you one of those in my sleep. You want him wearing Billy Bob Halloween teeth? Wearing a mullet cut wig?

No. I want him to stick a bottle of nasal spray up his nose. And no fair showing his hands, either.

Wait! You ask the impossible! This is a major spiritual leader.

So now you’re chicken? Balk, balk, balk-balk-balk-baaaaalk!!!!

Okay, okay, I’ll do it. But that’s it. You can forget about the mullet wig!

If all world leaders had the Dalai Lama’s sense of humor, the world would be a better place.

It appears that he tried to become one with the bottle.
