His Holiness The Dalai Lama Joins Twitter
The Dalai Lama has joined Twitter. Or, more than likely, somebody officially representing the Dalai Lama is updating Twitter on his behalf. Still, that's more impressive than some other religious figures. *ahem* Benedict. Anyway, now I'm just going to copy/paste the best Dalai Lama movie quote ever because KATIE COURIC DOESN'T HAVE SHIT ON MY NATURAL JOURNALISTIC ABILITIES. Don't know what to tell you, Kate, I guess some of us are just born with it (you stick with Maybelline).
Carl Spackler: So I jump ship in Hong Kong and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas.
Angie D'Annunzio: A looper?
Carl Spackler: A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. 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.
Thanks to Camille, who's seen 'Seven Years In Tibet' at least a half dozen times.
