    Default You're Not A Kenpo Monk

    And one more good joke from another site.

    A man is driving down the road and breaks down near
    a Kenpo Monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks
    on the door, and says,

    "My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the
    night?"

    The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even
    fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a
    strange sound. The next morning, he asks the monks
    what the sound was, but they say,

    "We can't tell you. You're not a Kenpo Monk."

    The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and
    goes about his merry way.

    Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of
    the same Kenpo Monastery. The monks accept him,
    feed him, even fix his car. That night, he hears the same
    strange noise that he had heard years earlier. The next
    morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply,

    "We can't tell you. You're not a Kenpo Monk."

    The man says, "All right, all right. I'm dying to know.
    If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to
    become a Kenpo Monk, how do I become a monk?

    "The monks reply, "You must travel the earth and tell
    us how many blades of grass there are, the exact
    number of sand pebbles on all the beaches and exactly
    which way is the correct way to perform the 154 Base
    Self Defense Techniques of Kenpo that SGM Parker
    left us with. When you find these answers, you will
    become a Kenpo Monk."

    The man sets about his task. Forty-five years later, he
    returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He
    says, "I have traveled the earth and have found what
    you have asked for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades
    of grass, 231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles
    on the earth, There are 456,789,987,765,478,234,793
    different ways to execute the 154 Self Defense Techniques".

    The monks reply, "Congratulations. You are now a Kenpo
    Monk.

    We shall now show you the way to the sound."

    The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the
    Head Kenpo Monk says, "The sound is right behind that door."
    The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked.
    He says, "Real funny. may I have the key?" The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man demands the key to the stone door. The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one
    made of sapphire. So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, amethyst...

    Finally, the monks say, "This is the last key to the last
    door." The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the
    door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed
    to find the source of that strange sound.

    But I can't tell you what it is, because YOU'RE not a
    Kenpo Monk.

    There are sooooooo many retorts to this, none of them kind.
    Just because you do something one way, does not mean that everyone else does it that way, or that it is even the correct way.

    That is so funny. It really makes you think about the ol' "Well this is how SGM parker told me and there is no other way because you are not a "Kenpo Monk." Definatly a thinker
