Buddhist Joke #1

An old man goes to the Smithsonian carrying a hatchet. “This hatchet,” he tells the curator of the American History museum, “has been in my family for generations. I am a direct descendent of George Washington, and this is the very hatchet that he used to cut down the cherry tree.”

“Well,” replied the curator, “we would of course be very interested in such an artifact. But this hatchet doesn’t look old enough to come from the late 18th century.”

Incensed, the old man replied, “We’ve been using this hatchet straight through that period on a working farm. Naturally we’ve had to keep it in good repair, so over the years we’ve changed out the handle 3 times and the blade twice.”
