English Patient Teacher

Setting: English Patient G is giving a lesson to a bunch of first-graders on animal body parts with a picture of a cow.

English Patient G: So these are the legs.  And here, this is the tail.  And here, these two things that stick out of the cow’s head.. they are called hooves.

1st Grader: (raises hand)

English Patient G: Yes?

1st Grader: Umm… I don’t think those are hooves…

English Patient G: What do you mean?  What are they called, then?

1st Grader: I don’t remember what they are called, but they are not hooves.

English Patient G: What are hooves, then?

1st Grader: I’m not sure.  But those things on the head.. I don’t think they are hooves.

English Patient G: Yes they are.

1st Grader: Okay.

Brother Monk

A particular man in our midst, who will remain anonymous (the identity of this man is to remain strictly confidential, as evidenced by the effort put into protecting his identity in the photo), walked into Berkel Berkel, which is a Korean restaurant on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley.

After sitting down, he ordered Bulgogi, which is a common Korean BBQ beef dish.  What he didn't know was that the owner of Berkel Berkel was a Buddhist.  After ordering, the owner came out to this particular brother and said with a disturbed look on his face:

"Ummm... should you be ordering this?  I'm not sure if I feel okay about selling meat to a..."

Brother D quickly realized what was happening and said, "Oh, I'm not a monk."

The owner's eyes widened, and he tried to quickly recover, "Oh... is that so?  Wow, I just thought that since your face looked so peaceful, you must have been...  Well, then, enjoy."

I'm not really sure about the owner's logic... First of all, if your Buddhist convictions are bothered by someone eating meat, why are you selling meat in the first place?  Second, I highly doubt that the owner made his judgment by looking at how peaceful this particular brother's face looked.

English Patient: Love and Marriage

Sister Y: [pointing to a broom during Sunday setup]  What is this thing called in English?

Friend: That's a broom.

Sister Y: You mean like what brides get married to?

Friend: Oh my gosh!!  That's "groom", not "broom"!

Sister Y: [trying to recover] Oh, well, I thought bride and broom made sense because I thought husbands are supposed to sweep the house after they get married.
