Dalai Lama
Have you heard the one about the Dalai Lama and the Australian news anchor?

Interviewing the Dalai Lama during the Buddhist leader's visit to Australia, Karl Stefanovic felt comfortable enough to try out a classic Dalai Lama joke.
He starts: "The Dalai Lama walks into a pizza shop and says: 'Can you make me one with everything?'"
As the 60-year-old looks back quizzically, Stefanovic realises the tumbleweed is coming, asking: "Do you know what I mean?"
Laughing, he then resorts to gestures as he attempts to explain the play on words.
Giving up, he rests his head on his hands laughing and admits: "I knew that wouldn't work."
And that, rather than the joke, is what finally brings a chuckle from the Dalai Lama.
