Little Lenny, bit of Buddha

This keeps slowly growing. Here’s its latest incarnation — a little Lenny Bruce, a bit of Buddha.

Jokerman

Didn’t Thich Nhat Hanh once open for Was (Not Was)?

Why does the sign always say Rite-Aid?
Maybe I want to go to Wrong-Aid for once.

What is the sound of one hand clapping?
Patting yourself on the back.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To get revenge for the road crossing it.

Have a new game: first I eat a raisin, then I eat a grape . . .
call it Re-Incarnation.

Why did the egg cross the road?
To get to the chicken on the other side.

Knock not.
Who’s there?
Not the world, knocked much longer.

What are purple, really angry, and you’d better stay out of their way?
The grapes of wrath.

What do you call an honest cop?
Mythological.

Persian abortion:
Stuff snake up snatch, turn mongoose loose.

Is a Caesarean section a womb with a view?
No – that is a test tube baby.

What should you do if you see a drowning banker?
Toss him a hundred pound bag of pennies.

U has to be the best letter of the alphabet
Because so many say “I love u”

Why is the sound of one gland collapsing?
What the right gland giveth, the wrong gland taketh awry.
