A Zen master had a hoarse voice, so he asked a local medical man for a remedy. The medical man said, “I thought you Zen guys had all the answers.” The Zen master nodded his head and said, “We have no answers, my friend. But, you have medicine. Would you withhold it from me to make some sort of point?” The medical man was cowed and gave the Zen master a tincture. As the master left the shop, the medical man said, “Ass.” But, he said it really softly, because he thought that maybe the Zen master had powers. Like, Jedi powers.
