Yup, pretty icky, I agree. But let me see ....

Department of Defense: Didn't that used to be the more comprehensible War Department?

Human Resources: Didn't that used to be Personnel back when employees were considered people and not spark plugs or crescent wrenches?

And the most insulting of all (chocolate alert!) is the chocolate-looking cake that tastes like reconstituted cardboard and sugar.

And then there's always Enlightenment ... but we won't go there. :)

Yeah you wouldnt find them naming one after jesus.

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.
