From King Kaufman’s Sports Daily at Salon.com, reporting from the SF protests:

A young man dressed as the Dalai Lama stumbled through the crowds along the barricades lining the curb in front of the Ferry Building. He was moaning. Another man walked behind him, waving a Chinese flag and hitting the ersatz Dalai Lama with a rolled-up magazine. “Get out of here!” the second man yelled as he swung.

“Yeah!” yelled a Chinese woman who saw them. She waved her red flag at the men. “Good job! Good job!”

A man with a South Asian accent turned to his friend. “I don’t think she got it,” he said. “I think she missed the satire.”

And that was your SchizOlympics Moment of Zen.
