So, there are these 3 monks in a cave..

Three monks are doing meditation in a remote cave.  One day a sound is heard from outside the cave.  After about six months, one of the monks says, “Did you hear that goat?”  Once again there was silence.  About a year later, one of the other monks says, “That wasn’t a goat; it was a mule.”  Again, there was silence.  About two years later the third monk says, “If you two don’t stop arguing, I’m leaving.”
