An Australian television presenter attempted to tell a Dalai Lama joke to the man himself, but struggled to raise a smile.
Karl Stefanovic from the Today show had to have elements of the joke translated to the Tibetan leader, and the play on words were met with a blank stare until the Dalai Lama laughed at Mr Stefanovic's attempts to explain the humour.
Poor Dalai Lama just didn't get it, made for some pretty funny viewing though! He did have a good laugh about it eventually. Awesome guy.
