Three Yogis in a Cave


So there are these three yogis meditating in a cave. They've been there for ten years -- in total silence the entire time. Absolute still. Absolutely focused. Living on air alone. Then one day, in the tenth year of their retreat, an albino mountain lion makes his way to the mouth of the cave and lets out a ferocious roar.

Ten years pass.

The first yogi twitches slightly, opens his mouth and says "WOW!"

Another ten years pass. Then the second yogi blinks and blurts, "Yeah, I know what you mean, brother."

Ten more years pass.

"HEY!" the third yogi bellows, "If you guys don't shut up, I'm moving to another cave."
