    WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?

    “Asking this question denies your own chicken nature.”

  2. At a Chinese monastery, long long ago, three students were debating, trying to impress their teacher. Looking at the flag on the pole, one pointed and said, “the flag is flapping.” The second said, “no, it is wind that is flapping.” The third, the smartest of them all, said, “no, mind is flapping.”

    The teacher, irritated, replied, “lips are flapping.”
