OBAMA: It is good to finally meet you here, your Holiness. Thank you for coming.
DALAI LAMA: It is good to see you, President Obama.
OBAMA: Your good friend Sharon Stone called the White House today nine times in anticipation of your arrival.
DALAI LAMA: She is–what do you call–a hoot. Very good intention, but very hot mind.
DALAI LAMA: (leaning in) And of course, as nuts as a bowl of almonds.
[gently, they chuckle]
OBAMA: Your job seems… challenging.
DALAI LAMA: Your job also seems challenging. However, this is a good test for you.
OBAMA: It is. I believe that that ultimately, the American people are good. We all want to benefit humanity, just go about it in different ways.

Happy birthday to William Hung, who turned 27 this week!
Though he hasn’t produced a record in years, Hung has somehow hung (ahem) out prominently in our minds–like sticky rice on the back of a wooden spoon–until present. Most Hung-related memories make us want to drag him out from his hole just to slap him silly, just because he so famously embodied for millenials every marshmallow-faced, Engrish-speaking, penis-shrinking stereotype we (like our hero, Bruce Lee) have ever tried to kick to the curb.
So here’s hoping now that Hung’s a little bit older, he’s also a bit wiser (and for all of you quick-draw commenters, I know he’s plenty book smart, but we’re talking wisdom here). Maybe he’ll find a way to channel all of that “attitude and charisma” into something wonderful, like medical school or law school (kidding)! Listen, we’re stoked as long as he’s not making us all look like clowns. Anymore.
