    Road rage Tibetan style … I’m seeing red.

    At first people thought it strange for the Chinese government to import foreign cultural events, unfortunately it is now clear why China wanted to import the running of the bulls to Tibet.

    So your saying the monks are like Scotsmen wearing kilts only more so? I guess it would cut down on laundry bills.

    And oh, dear, Dalai Lama has blown out a sneaker, and has landed in the ditch surrounding the first turn. We hope the Dalai Lama is not injured, but the radar guns say he WAS doing over 80mph at the time of the sneaker failure.

    She’ll laugh when she reads the part that says I’m leavin’
    ‘Cause I’ve left that girl so many times before ….
