Monks on the run

A BUDDHIST CLASS is distracted from its vow of silence and self-discipline when a couple of hundred coloured gas-filled balloons somehow get into the monastery. The monks go ape and it all comes down to another “glass and a half of pure joy” contained in a bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk.
