I found a buddha

Post by DrF » Wed Dec 27, 2017 12:26 pm

A few weeks ago I read a article about a man who put a buddha on his street corner and it helped reduce crime in the area, people came with gifts for the buddha and even built the thing a shrine.

Anyhow I went looking for a buddha and could not find one... until this morning I found this little guy just left on the side of the road... now I have a buddha. Later I shall build him a shrine with LED lights.

Oh boy, you didn't rub his belly while cleaning it, did you?

And if so... Do you already feel sick in the morning? I heard a piece of bread helps...

:-P

Oh man :lol:

Google has results for both getting lucky and getting pregnant.
Although oddly it seems Catholic items seem to get people pregnant more judging by the number of results?

He seems quite happy at the fireplace for now, all dry now :)
