Now, of course, there are a lot more meaningful things to say about the Dalai Lama’s visit, but the more we think about this episode in “meaning” the more it interests us. We’ve listened to the video of the Paramount Theater talk, and it sure sounds like “fuck it” to us. What’s more, the reaction from the audience and the panels clearly suggested they thought he said it too. Everyone cracked up! Over at the Hook, Dave McNair went into this in a little more detail, and also included the audio clip. A mispronunciation? Or the DL being a stand-up comic? Either way, he’s a hipster to us.
