Just in Case the Bush Tries any Funny Stuff

This photo is not particularly exceptional aesthetically, but I’m convinced it’s evidence that monks have a solid sense of humor. I suppose they must, being stuck in a stone sanctuary trying to focus on religion when tourists are constantly poking their noses in.

It’s not just that there’s a fire extinguisher beside the reputed descendant of the burning bush (when spontaneous combustion has yet to be proven hereditary), but the idea that, should the shrub be inspired again into flames, there would be attempts to put it out.

“Jesus, is that bush yapping again? Put that damn thing out; I’m trying to get some sleep for Christ’s sake.”
