Oh, you just simply have not seen cute until you see 4-year old Capucine’s video appeal for books to fill a library for rural Mongolian schoolkids. Seriously. Yer gonna squeal and shriek, even if yer a feller. Tell me if I’m lying.
And then the credit card just flew into your hand, right? And you were powerless not to click the "Chip In" widget at the bottom and give a little something, right? I hope so, it’s a great cause. And did you click the t-shirt page and get one for yourself or someone else? Man, I would have. The most hilariously perfect, illustrated expression of the bodhisattva mind: “The problem is that I love you.” In French, men’s ringer, XL, tangerine. Except no one lets Konchog have a credit card anymore.
(Secretly, I want “The crocodile would eat the babies,” but it would take a good couple hours’ tortuous translation to explain to my Mongolian friends why that’s funny – or why such a thing is being sold to help Mongolian kids – and in the end they wouldn’t laugh and I’d be deported. I’m already under some suspicion for my tattoos.)
