Writing that last piece reminded me of one of my all-time favourite stupid gags. I think I may have even blogged this one before, I like it so much. A groaner, but I can't help repeating it:

So this Zen Master walks up to a hot dog stand and says: "Make me one with everything."

The guy fixes a hot dog and hands it to the Zen Master, who pays with a $10 bill. The hot dog vendor pockets the bill and smiles back at the Zen Master.

"Hey, what about my change?" asks the buddhist. To which the hot dog guy replies: "Change must come from within."

I think there's a third part to this one, but can't remember it at the moment. Probably just as well.
