Best dialog heard in the last few days:

Al: I want to buy one of those fat guys.

Karl: What?

Al: You know, one of those fat round guys that are made of wood.

Karl: *puzzles for a second* Do you mean a statue of the Buddha?

Al: Yeah, one of them.

Karl: I'm sure we will have a chance to buy one. But just for future reference- We do not usually refer to representations of Siddhārtha Gautama, The Enlightened One, The Supreme Buddha, as "one of those fat round guys".

So it should be "The Fat Round Guy" ?

At least.
