Not my original funny thought, but a funny story I heard in China.
A Chinese Buddhist teacher used to tell his friends that he thought Jesus Christ was a manifestation of Guan Yin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
He realized that many of his Christian friends were very offended.
So he changed his story. Now he tells his friends that he thinks Guan Yin is a manifestation of Jesus Christ.
And now, everybody is happy.
