> If I were to change anything, I'd drop the reference to "Zen".  That wasn't part of the original, and was added by someone else.  If, e.g., a Zen Buddhist objected that this use trivializes their beliefs, I'd have real sympathy with _that_.  But I'd be greatly surprised if a Zen Buddhist exists who objected to wordplay ;-)

I just happen to be a Zen Buddhist! And you’re right. The worst reaction you are likely to get is an eye roll.
