Ajahn Brahm’s Joke

Ajahn Brahmavamso, the abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery in Western Australia, is a monk who likes to joke. Here is one from him:

In 2005, it was reported that US interrogators in Guantanamo flushed a Quran down the toilet, causing uproar in Islamic world. After the incident, Australian journalists interviewed Ajahn Brahm. They asked him, “What is your reaction if someone flushes Buddhist holy books down the toilet?”

Guess what is Ajahn Brahm’s answer?

“I’ll call the plumber.”
