A special visit to Borea College in Arkansas by the Dalai Lama to endorse the methods of peace, wound up giving 90% of the students the diarrhea.
"I am so sorry, but I was driven through your rural areas before coming here and I had to get out and relieve myself after eating some rhubarb pie last night. I think it had e-coli or something", the Lama told Herman Floyd of The Village Idiot News.
Although few students had ventured out of the dorms except on the run, one did stop long enough to say that the speech by the Dalai Lama was a great one, especially the first ten minutes. Then her eyes nearly pooped out of her head and she left like a runaway Toyota badly in need of mudflaps.
Meanwhile, the Dalai Lama had been forced to stay overnight, mostly in the bathroom. So to get an interview we had to go inside.
"Are the people of this state non-travelers?"
"Not anymore. Look outside and you'll see them moving around at a tremendous speed."
"The reason I ask. During trip here through the countryside, all the people looked the same."
