Trungpa Rinpoche and The Truth.

CTR had a highly developed sense of fun. He also sent himself up frequently. As well as not taking various elements of Buddhist customs over- seriously.
If he declared so and so to be a 'tulku' the possibility that he was making a point about others taking things too seriously should not be discounted.

Problem I've also had with CTR was you could never really tell when he making a serious point through humor, when he amusing himself by playing games, and when it was the whiskey talking.
