Once there was a billionare, who was tired of the good life. Since he was not getting any excitement from counting his money, watching his children grow, or pleasing his wife, he decided to chuck it all and go beatnik.
So, he gave away his Armani suits, put on a bikini and a large towel and went out for a long walk.
Since he had no money he had to panhandle and soon other deadbeats caught on to how this was pretty cool, and joined him in his wanderings around the world begging for food, money, or a cappuccino on a good day.
He saw that there were many poor people outside his penthouse walls, and since he had never been exposed to the raw side of life,got a reality check. If he had given away all his wealth, he would have started a riot, and pissed off his long suffering wife, so he ducked out of the neighborhood. Then he found a secluded cave in the park and sat down to think about it all.
Years later he came up with the answer. Then his followers were so eqger to spread the word of this humble guru that they convinced some venture capitalists to build great temples and carve statures of this “holy’ man’s image and spread the new religion around.
After he died, the followers cremated him and put some of his ashes at the bottom of a large grave hill. Later, a rival venture capitalist took over and wiped out the tomb and buildings, cut the heads off the statues and tried to erase all memory of the religion from his territory.
So what was the message of this new religion?
Basically the message is “Don’t be jerks”.
