I found this piece
literature that I think belongs in the apocrypha.
Would like your thoughts on how to get it into
sealed scripture?

After an hour's meditation in NYC's Central Park,
Zen Guru approached a hot-dog vendor on the
street and
asked, "Make me one with everything."

The vendor prepared the hot-dog and gave it to
the Zen
Guru who offered a $20 bill in payment. The
vendor put the $20 bill into his cash drawer and
closed the drawer.

When the Zen Guru protested that the hot-dog
should give him change, the hot-dog vendor
"Oh no. Change comes from within."

End of story. Here is my take on the discussion
heaven re: including this in Scripture. The
discussion occurs in heaven:

St. Matthew: While the tale has linguistic
merit, it
fails on explicit teaching. It is much too brief
merit inclusion in my gospel. Suggest Mark

St. Mark: No way, it is much too long for my
book. I
will pass on it and send it to John.

St. John: The vocabulary lacks richness and
definition. It fails on its lack of Christologic
siignificance as well. But I would love to hear
Paul's opinion.

St. Paul: (always lacking in humor) - - This is
apostacy. Surely this prevents the Buddhists
seeing our Lord and keeps them out of heaven.
Peter, who is rolling in laughter over the joke,
says), One look at Peter's reaction tells me
that it
is most inappropriate for any of my letters.

St. Peter: (merely winks at Luther as both Peter
Luther know that Paul hasn't left his room in
and met any Buddhists).

Luther chimes in: I only wish I had told it

Calvin responds: It was destiny that you weren't
one to tell it Luther. It is however, very
typical of
your crass humor.

The Holy Spirit chimes in: Oh, if they only had
me seriously, they would have seen the
opportunity to
have me help them change.

Jesus concludes. I like it. It leaves it open
interpretation and requires the hearer to
Put it in St. Luke and call it a lock.

St. Luke says: Fine, I will scribe it today. It
all Greek to me.
