Zen and Humour

I went to my first Zen sitting last night. It was fun. My feet fell asleep.

Before the sitting, the head zen guy (don't ask me what they call themselves) gave a little speech on humour. It wasn't funny.

I guess zen teachers know as much about humour as stand-up comics do about mediation.
