Diversity Lodge at Work

While visiting a newly initiated brother at home one day, his wife took me aside and said that her husband had started behaving very strange since joining. I enquired in what way? She said, "He locks himself in the bathroom for hours on end mumbling to himself with his little blue book."

As the evening proceeded I turned the talk to his studies, and asked how he was getting along. "Oh fine!" he said. Then I asked him about his behavour and was there any thing wrong? "No" was his reply. So I asked "Why read the book there?" He simply replied, "Its the only TYLED room in the house"....
