The Dalai Lama is reported to be a student of his teachings.

Since the Prime Minister David Cameron stated this week, that: 'if we lost Scotland, it would rip a rug from under the UK's reputation', Scottish and English philosopers and linguistic scholars alike have been in a frantic race to divine the meaning of this prophetic announcement.

One school of thought is that the rug is in fact a figurative wig atop the head of the body of reputation of Great Britain, which is currently inverted in a meditative yoga position while contemplating future direction. Hence 'ripping the rug from under'.

Other deep thinkers have concluded that the PM's wise words were intended to convey that the magic carpet of policy delivery might be torn from beneath the shivering backside of government if the Scottish were not there to add to the weave of the shag pile.

Eminent philosophers everywhere have agreed that the PM's words will be pivotal in shaping our future national identity, and eagerly await him squeezing out his next nugget.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
