The Monday Hotness: Little-Known Facts Edition

So, okay, if you’re the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama, when you have a birthday cake, how many candles do you get? Like, do you get 74 because your physical birthday was July 6, 1935 or do you have to count the other 13 Lamas? Because if it’s the latter, that’s a lot of candles and what with the flowing robes and all, well…that’s just a heartache waiting to happen, PLUS I’d rather hopscotch Hell than try to put 628 candles representative of each year of the Dalai Lama’s reign on a regulation-size Fudgie the Whale. Like the spandex in a Herve Leger bandage dress, modern science can only do so much.


If ever I were to cheat on mypretendboyfriend The Archbishop of My Pants Canterbury it would totally be with the Dalai Lama, even though I secretly suspect he may not be Episcopalian.

I mean how do you not love this guy? Granted his eyebrows aren’t nearly as bitchin’ as my own personal potentate, but seriously.

The Dalai Lama and Rowan Williams, The Archbishop of my Pants
This guy? Knows how to party. But what ELSE do we know about His Holiness?

Well, I’ll tell you.

Aside from being an all-around Awesome Guy and spiritual leader to millions the Dalai Lama:

Can re-enact the entire screenplay of “Dances With Wolves” with accurate blocking, but secretly prefers Costner’s earlier work.

red rover
Has NEVER lost a game of Red Rover Red Rover. But he’d be okay if he did.

Actually created the choreography for Janet Jackson’s 1989 “Rhythm Nationvideo but didn’t take the screen credit because he thought it would be “showy”.

TOTALLY shares your 6th grade crush on that guy from “Parker Lewis Can’t Lose” even after you found out he went all weird and Scientologist-y and still hangs out with one of the Coreys.

COULD kill you with the most powerful finger-gun known to man, but wouldn’t because he believes in following the path of non-violence, even in finger form.

So happy birthday Your Holiness, and many many happy returns!* To the holiest of our Monday Hotnesses.

*Yeah. A reincarnation joke. I went there. Enlighten up, y’all.

    You have to love a guy with a sense of humor! I can’t imagine seeing his popeness ever showing such joy for life.

    Of all the Holinesseses The Dalai Lama is my absolute fave, awesome choice of Hotness.

    Oh, Plumcake, I know a HI-larious Rowan Williams story, nothing seedy, but not fit for the comments section. Frankly, the sooner you can get to London the better, I will buy you a drink and introduce you to my queer theologian co-worker, who has anecdotes that would redden the cheeks of any world religious leader.

    Too funny! I’m so upset that Corin Nemec is a scientologist, but is suppose it’ll be okay because I always like Kubiac best.

    And the arm muscles we are offered to see … so earthly sexy and transcendental! Am going to see him in Lausanne, Switzerland next 4-5 August, talking on happiness… but am already so happy today reading your post!

    Plumcake, you’re damn brilliant, is what.

    True story: my friend was pregnant, at the stage you’d call “Vastly pregnant” and the Dalai Lama saw her, walked over, put his hands and head on her belly, whispered something and then smiled at her and walked away.

    And that baby looks JUST like him. No lie.
