Buddhist Monks Bet Nearly $1M During 13 Hour Drunken Poker Binge

we should get these guys over on Friday Night….

The scandal erupted just days before Koreans observe a national holiday to   celebrate the birth of Buddha, the holiest day of the religion’s calendar.

The head of the Jogye order, which has some 10 million followers, or about a   fifth of the population, made a public apology on Friday, vowing “self-repentance”.

South   Korean TV networks aired shots of monks playing poker, some smoking   and drinking, after gathering at a luxury lakeside hotel in late April for a   fellow monk’s memorial service.
