Holy smoke!

A monk was walking in the monastery garden during a period of meditation. He encountered another monk who was smoking as he walked slowly along the path.

"Did you get permission to smoke during meditation?" asked the first monk.

"Yes, I was given permission."

"But I asked if I could smoke during meditation and was turned down!"

"You didn't phrase it properly. You asked if you could smoke during meditation. I asked if I could meditate while I smoked."

Kenny: I think smoking is not haram like drinking ...

Mave: Yeah, proper English usage would really help some of our politicians too, eh? ;-P

I met the smoking monke at Fishhead curry house in Mantin.

The other monke is actually a nun in disguise; she rendewooed with the made monke until I interrupted, and I said: 3 is a loud, and we adjourned for runch, which means a lunch made on the run before the nun's absence was noticed at the NONvent:)
