Chapter 1: Zen: The Koan of Life

A French father caught his ten-year-old son smoking. Trying to be an open-minded parent, he said carefully, “Mon fils, I am educating you with great liberte. I let you have whatever you want so that it does not create any complexes in you. Alors, s’il te plait, take heed of my advice. I think you are too young to start smoking.”

“Je ne.! Mon oeil!” replied the son indignantly, “Why, just the other day I fucked three girls! Oh, la la! And you think I am not big enough to smoke?”

“Oh, Mon Dieu! Tu as fait ca?” And with what type of girls?”

“Je ne sais pas,” replied the boy, “I was too drunk to take notice.”

Enough for today.
