Taiwan’s big fat monk is a big fat medical joke!

Taiwan’s big fat monk is a big fat medical joke!

Yeah!  What a big fat medical joke!

Only one exclamation here since I am talking about only one big fat monk!

Taiwan’s big fat monk, Master Hsing Yun of Buddhist Light Mountain in Kaohsiung, suffered cerebral hemorrhage three times and was vomiting on October 30, 2016.  He was taken to the Kaohsiung Chang Geng Hospital.  At 91 years old, the big fat monk has high blood sugar, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.  Doctors decided to operate immediately in the afternoon of October 31 to remove the blood clot in the brain.

The joke is that this big fat monk is supposed to be a vegetarian, he is supposed to meditate and recite his Buddhist scripture every day, he sits all day either in front of the altar or in a wheelchair, and as Buddhist monks and nuns go, they are not supposed to consume a lot of candy nor drink alcoholic beverages.  Chinese do not drink tea with sugar or cream.

So, how the hell does a big fat monk get high blood sugar, high cholesterol and high blood pressure?
