The Vedantist at the Diner
 
There’s no zeal like that of the newly converted.
 
Did you hear the one about the new initiate to Advaita Vedanta?
 
This fella stops by a local diner for a bite to eat. The waitress comes over to take his order. While she patiently stands there he goes over the menu and at each item he comments, “Not this,” “Not this,” “Not this,” “Not this.”

After he goes through the entire 6 page menu like that, the waitress asks: “So, what’ll it be?”
 
He responds, “I don’t know.”

She: “Well, if you don’t know, who should?”

He: “Precisely!”
