Laughter against the devil

October 4, 2007

Stalking Sunlight reports that Buddhist monks in Burma – no joke – really have their butts in a sling.  But on the principle that the devil cannot endure laughter…

At his best Roy Zimmerman reminds me of Tom Lehrer, which is a high compliment.  This song introduces the word “patridiotic” which deserves to find its way into our lexicon.

One could say that the Burmese monks should take up arms but what they are doing instead may have more lasting effect for peace.  And I cannot fault their courage.
