Master: "Yes."
Monk 2: "Excuse me, master, is this what?"
Master: "Lao Tsi will ask for a volunteer from the audience to administer a kick in the groin."
Monk 2: "But he has been practicing in our ancient way, has he not?"
Master: "Sort of. We never actually made contact during his 'toughening' sessions. He is in for a rude surprise teeheehee."
Monk 1: "We taught him a mantra. 'Kik ma-in thajimi.' Teeheehee."
Monk 2: "Teeheehee. I can't wait to post this on Internet."
