I Didn't Know You Could Do This

Dalai Lama offers his flock a vote on whether he should be reincarnated.

Faced with Chinese plans to seize control of his reincarnation, the Dalai Lama has come up with two revolutionary proposals — either to forgo rebirth, or to be reborn while still alive.

The exiled Tibetan Buddhist leader proposed yesterday to hold a referendum among his 13-14 million followers around the world — before his death — on whether he should be reincarnated or not.
I am afraid if I put my reincarnation up for a vote, it would come back as "Die now and never come back."

Funny! And bizarre!

And then there are many who might be willing to assist in the "die now" part.

I think I know a lady who would help me along my way for my opposition to the Lama.

Maybe just have the DL's head preserved, and reattached...oh, never mind--I'm not sure how good of company he'd be for Ted Williams...
