One day somebody came to the teahouse and asked, “Sisman, how many followers do you have?”
Declared Sisman, “I think there’s something fundamentally wrong with people who follow other people around.”
Said somebody, “Aren’t you just saying that because you don’t have any followers?”
Replied Sisman, “No not at all. I do have lots of followers but I always encourage my followers not to follow each other around.”
