RASO'S TO HOST THE DALAI LAMA!
Story by Nell Escobar-Jokely
Dan Hurley: Your Holiness, Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yesh Tenzin Gyatso, gee it's so good to see you...
Dalai Lama: My religious name is Tenzin Gyatso, but you can call me Dalai, Dan!
Dan Hurley: Dalai Dan, that's funny, my name is Dan too! Are you any relation to the Black Dahlia? We have a Medford Historical Society monument for her on Salem Street http://www.bethshort.com/memorial.htm
Dalai Lama: No relation.
Dan Hurley: Can I offer you a drink?
The Dalai Lama stares down Dan Hurley
Dan Hurley: OK, bad idea.
Dalai Lama: Why are there pair of eyes peering at me from window?
Dan Hurley: Wow, you must be psychic. Do you have second sight in the back of your head or something?
Dalai Lama: No, I see her peering through glass here at Raso's by looking in yonder mirror.
Dan Hurley: Oh, that's Madame X she's busy stalking one of the police officers. She always does that. She's like a decoration here.
Dalai Lama: Looks like she's auditioning for the sequel to Fatal Attraction. What does Director Adrian Lyne live in Medford or something?
Dan Hurley: We wish. No, she's just your garden variety unhinged psycho witch from hell. Keeps things colorful in the city.
Dalai: I bet! Which one of the police officers is she sexually attracted to?
Dan Hurley: The politically connected one over there...
Dalai Lama: Such low standards for American women!
Dan Hurley: Yeah, my boss had the hots for her too, but now he's dating the cop's niece.
Dalai Lama: Strange, Double Dipping Donato is dating daughter of cop's brother?
Dan Hurley: Or sister, I dunno, you'll find Medford is very incestuous.
Dalai Lama: Indeed! I'm 77, how old is your boss?
Dan Hurley: Just about your age!
Dalai Lama: HE'S OLD ENOUGH TO BE HER GRANDFATHER!
Dan Hurley: Hey, absolute power corrupts absolutely, but bless his dishonest little heart,
Dan Hurley: You know, Dalai, that's not a bad idea...The Boston Globe quotes a D.A. ...
“This is one of the largest criminal [problems] in the history of the
Commonwealth,” said Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey.
Dalai Lama: a larger criminal problem than the regime of Frankie Foolishness?
Dan Hurley: Careful, Dalai...so what if Frank Took the Money!
Dalai Lama: I'm here to enlighten
Dan Hurley: We've already got the editor of Medford Information Central to enlighten...Martha Coakley's scared and
Dalai Lama: State Rep Donato is fuming! Well, it's Donato's own damn fault for stabbing that cordial tv host in the back!
to be continued....next up: The Dalai meets Double Dipper Donato!
