Field Marshal Generalissimo Chögyam Trungpa

Like many tinpot dictators, Field Marshal Generalissimo Chögyam Trungpa the Sacred Warrior and World Saviour, liked to dress up in fancy costumes and imagine himself as a great hero. Here in Australia we have a long tradition of laughing at such poseurs and we call them wankers (as in masturbators). In cases like this a picture is worth a thousand or more words.
