Okay, I think most people would agree - this is funny.

A Buddhist preacher in Thailand has announced plans for the country's first "good manners" curriculum for monks.

He is especially concerned by the flamboyant behaviour of gay and transgender monks, who can often be seen wearing revealingly tight robes, carrying pink purses and having effeminately-shaped eyebrows.

"... gay and transgender monks..." Now there's two, uh three words I never thought I would see in the same sentence! But then I never expected to learn that Kung Fu Caine would die while wacking away at the end of a noose. Buddah must be spinning in his grave.

(So the monks are gay and transgender? Sounds like they're just confused!)
