Once a farmer owned a beautiful horse. Many people came from the village to see his horse and said "how lucky you are". "Maybe" said the farmer.

One day the horse escaped because someone left the gate open. The villagers came round and said "oh dear what a calamity"..."maybe" said the farmer.

The next day the horse appeared on the horizon with twenty horses in tow! The farmer now had 20 horses. The villagers came around again.."oh such good luck"..."maybe, maybe"!

The next day the farmer's son went riding on one of the new horses. Whilst riding the horse threw him and broke his leg. The villagers came flocking round "oh how terrible" they chimed..."maybe" said the farmer.

Two days later the King declared war on a neighbouring country and sent out a demand for all young men to go to the battlefront...the farmer's son was excused...

Simon, That joke's got a rubbish punch line.

A bloke goes to stay at his pal's farm. He shows him round, when they come to the pigs' field they all rush to greet them. One has a wooden leg. 'why does he have a wooden leg?' "Well he's a special pig, one day I was stacking hay and the bails collapsed trapping me. That pig saw and pulled me free. He saved my life." 'Oh so that's how he lost his leg?' "No, one night we were awoken by that same pig throwing himself against the door warning us the house was on fire. He saved the entire family." 'So that's how he lost it.' "No." 'Then how?' "Look mate you don't eat a special pig all in one go"

Enough with the buddhism examples! Aren't you supposed to use the books as a "raft to help you cross the stream"? Once on the other side, you let it go. So let it go man, let it go.

Unless... perhaps you still aren't on the other side?

Hey Yasimoto , are you any relation of young Ricki 'Yasamoto' Fowler who wears orange robes on tournament days in honour of his Zen Buddhist grandaddy?
