Dear Buddha, Please Help North Korea!

Dear Buddha,

Yesterday, I saw a North Korean woman, now an American citizen, greedily swallow lotus seed buns. And after eating all that, she said, "I'm still hungry."

Tears rolled down my cheeks when I saw her mad eyes and tunnel-like mouth hungrily swallowing lots and lots of buns. How tragic it is that as a child, she must have been deprived of food. And now, she is mad and crazy. She even calls herself 'Black Widow', probably, because she is planning to eat her husband as well.

O Lord Buddha, please have some mercy on this woman. And give her a permanent amnesia so that she forgets her hungry childhood. And, please inspire her to send some of those buns back home, so that the hungry children of that poor country ruled by ILL whomever, feel happy.

That, O Great One sitting on Lantau Island, is my only prayer for today.

Your humble and obedient servant,

Wan Ker
