A Buddha, an Autist & a Chicken Go into a Costco: A No Joke

Costco roasted chickens cost you just $4.99.

Read what it costs the chicken.

So. This is a No Joke. A Zen laugh. The sound of no one laughing…

Here’s the set up…

Nothing like finding out you’re autistic late in life to make you ponder the nature of intelligence, consciousness, Being…

And the arrogant evil of typical human morality.

Costco’s a great company. Everybody says so.

Great products. Great store. Treats their workers great. They’re even great on the environment… for, ya know, a box store.

And g-d knows their rotisserie roast chickens are convenient. Cheap. Delicious.

Great.

Here’s the No Joke…

All sentient beings experience pain.

And fear.

And horror.

And terror.

Buddha said something sort of like that 2500 years ago. Which kinda sent some of his more meticulous students into a panic.

How could they tell which creatures were sentient…? Of no mild concern to zealous vegetarians.

I have no idea what a cosmic giggle sounds like. Imagine you just heard a glorious example….

Buddha pointed at an ant crawling up the log he sat on. Then he simply tapped his finger on the wood.

The ant ran.

Here’s the punchline…

Costco roasted chickens cost you just $4.99.

Read what it costs the chicken:

Hear the sound of No One laughing?
