Mahatma Gandhi always walked barefoot and ultimately the soles of his feet became thick and very hard. He also was, of course, known to be a man of deep spiritual conviction. He undertook hunger strikes as a political protest and at times was both thin and frail. Furthermore, due to his weird diet, he suffered from bad breath. VERY bad breath.
In fact, in time he came to be known as "a super-callused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis."
A musician lived in a house virtually surrounded by a small lake. One day, after hearing a particularly beautiful piece of music, he bought several cans of spray pain and proceeded to weave intricate, but colorful patterns of paint on the surface of the water. When asked why, he replied that he was especially fond of moats art.
While walking through a cemetery in Vienna a tourist heard music coming from a gravesite. The headstone read, "Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770?1827." The man listened for a few moments before recognizing the music as the Ninth Symphony, being played backwards. Puzzled, the man left the graveyard and persuaded a friend to return with him. By the time they arrived at the grave the music had changed. This time it was the Seventh Symphony but, like the previous piece, it was being played backwards. Curious, the men agreed to consult a music scholar. When the two men returned to the grave with the expert, the Fifth Symphony was playing. Again, it was backwards. Naturally, word got around about the strange happenings at Beethoven's grave and the next day a large crowd had gathered and was listening to the Second Symphony, being played backwards. Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambled up to the grave. Someone in the crowd asked him if he had an explanation for the music.
"Don't you get it," the caretaker asked incredulously, "he's decomposing."
