buddha on a diet?

Ok...this might be culturally insensitive but it has bothered me for a few weeks. I walk by a few nail shops on my way to work each morning. Living in downtown TO, we're not short on nail salons both thrifty and snobberific where you can get yer nails did at a moment's notice. There's a particular one that's tucked away just off of Yonge St. at Gerrard St. East that opened up about six months or so ago. It's actually the sister store to another around the corner run by some lovely Cambodian ladies who will always try to upsell you on on the mani-pedi even if you want the one. In the window of the store is some, er, deities of their faith including a robust little Buddha surrounded by assorted treats... including a chocolate dip donut from timmy ho's. uh...I didn't know Buddha was a fan. I kind of want to stand up for poor Buddha and say the fruit is fine but please don't force the donut on me. but if you're going to send me something sweet, get me a scone from the 'bucks, would ya?

I'm still stuck with the treats I bought in Montreal over the long weekend and the 15 miles I have run since Saturday is not enough to burn it all off!

Buddha may have lost his belly if only he was more health consious.

Yeah buddah's kind of on the obese side, so maybe the donuts are not a healthy choice for him

Too funny
