Philosophical Humor: Zen Hot Dogs
Stage 1. A guy goes up to a Zen hot dog vendor and says “make me one with everything”.
Stage 2. The vendor prepares a hot dog with the works: mustard, ketchup, mayo, sauer kraut, onions, relish, and a splash of hot sauce, and hands it to the customer, who hands the Zen master a $20 bill, which he then calmly places in his apron pocket as the man begins to devour his hot dog. After a few moments, the customer realizes the Zen master has not given him his change, and asks the Zen master, “what about my change?”, to which the Zen master replies, “true change must come from within”.
