The Dalai Lama Lip Jiggle

Posted By on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 11:21 AM

Memphis mayor pro tem Myron Lowery might have gotten a fist bump from the Dalai Lama, but Flyer reporter Bianca Phillips has him beat: She got a lip-ring jiggle.

Phillips was at the National Civil Rights Museum this morning for a Q&A with the Dalai Lama and will be covering the rest of today's Freedom Awards events.

"After the Q&A, he was leaving the auditorium and everyone was reaching out to him," she reports. "He stopped at me and said, 'Ooooh,' and he reached out and jiggled my lip ring.

"He kind of laughed to himself and then he walked on."
