From the Confessing Evangelical blog:
Q: Why don't Buddhists hoover into the corners of rooms?
A: Because they don't have any attachments.
It was the Zen master's son's birthday, so he decided to give the boy nothing wrapped up in emptiness.
'This is a thoughtless, meaningless gift,' said the boy.
'Thank you,' replied the Zen master.
A Buddhist monk approached a hot dog stand.
'Make me one with everything,' he prayed.
The vendor did as he asked, and said, 'That'll be one pound fifty please.'
So the monk handed over a five pound note and waited. And waited, and waited.
'Where's my change?' he asked, finally.
'Change must come from within,' replied the vendor."
