a young monk walks up to an wise old monk and asks "sir, if i meditate for 10 hours a day how long will it take me to reach enlightenment?"

the elder monk replies, "perhaps 10 years"..

the young monk raises his eyes in understanding and says, "and if i meditate 18 hours a day?"

the elder monk smiles a knowing smile and replies "perhaps 20 years"

the young monk shakes his head and says "thats fuckin bullshit man. Your math is as ass backwards as your countries stance on human rights"

the elder monk nods.

the young monk says "sir, one more question?"

the elder monk nods again.

the young monk asks "how many days does it take a ruzz to alienate his readership if he blogs 10 blogs a day "

the older monk chuckles at the naivete of of the young monk and says "why, three only... of course."

the young monk takes note and asks "and if he only blogs once per day?"

the older monk chortles and says "still three only my boy. is it not obvious?"

the younger monk gives pause and reflects on the depth of this insight.

a moment of sacred silence passes.

follwed gracefully by the sound of a young naive monk beating an old wise monk to death with his left sandal.

But why the left sandal?

because the right sandal was still clean. the young monk stepped in camel shite (left sandal) on the way up the fucking hill to talk to the elder monk. moral: it's best to shite on others and not oneself.

i though the young monk actually wiped his ass with right sandal, so both sandals were covered in feces. so the young monk honored the elder monk by striking him with a camel dung sandal rather than beating him with his own shit. moral: honor your elders with the good poop, or not.

while it is good to shite on others rather than oneself and it is also wise to honor your elders with the good shit over the bad, the lesson of this parable was that when you are a ruzz, it is inevitable you will piss off your readers. Regardless of the way you do things.

also a sub lesson is it is always good to kill smarmy aged monks. There are too many of them in the world.
