Be Able to Laugh at Oneself

This last weekend we were over at a friend's house and the topic of vegetarianism came up and we explained that we have been veggies for two and a half months now.

The guy of the couple smirked and said, "What's that joke about vegetarians? Vegetarians are the village idiots who were too dumb to figure out the hunting fish thing."


I had to laugh.

Hope you can have a laugh with it too.

-Peace to all beings-

"Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused."

One of my favorite quotes, though I have no clue where it came from.

That is great!

I found you on someone else's link list, and had to visit with a title like The Buddhist Blog.

Wonderful, wonderful posts...keep it up, because we just can't get enough good messages out there.

Welcome to my blog. I always thought that the title of my blog was a bit boring but to the point I guess.

And yes you may link here. :)


Yeah, got any ideas?

That is pretty funny. Laughing at oneself is the best. There is never any guilt at who's feelings may have gotten hurt! =)

Yeah, I think laughter is an important part of letting attachments to our dear selves go.

Great dharma practice to laugh.
