Watch: The Dalai Lama doesn’t understand jokes about pizza

Pin it

Morning-show humor is apparently equally lame no matter what continent you're on. The Dalai Lama found this out the hard way, appearing on the Australian version of The Today Show only to be greeted with puns about pizza. Watch as host Karl Stefanovic greets his Holiness this groan-worthy quip, "So the Dalai Lama walks into a pizza shop, and says, 'Can you make me one with everything?'" (See what he did there?) The Buddhist leader's blank stare just about says it all. It's one of those deeply awkward, yet hilarious moments on par with the shenanigans over at The Office, except in real life and with a guy who's way more at peace with the himself than you'll ever be. Enlightenment never seemed further away.
