Buddhist humor that is actually laugh-out-loud funny as opposed to earnestly amusing is hard to come by. Having seen a few of David’s Buddhist-themed cartoons in the New Yorker and elsewhere, I called him in the summer of 2005 and he agreed to do work for us, to our mutual delight. David has told us, “As a sometime and rather inconsistent student of Buddhism and a long-time devotee of yoga, I have found that both are wonderfully rich ground for humor.” His first drawing appeared in the Shambhala Sun in early 2006. –Editor-in-Chief Melvin McLeod
