Buddhist Monks Playing Quidditch

Quidditch is a sport in the Harry Potter universe. It's sort of like soccer, except that the players ride on broomsticks. There are real world versions too--even for Muggles like you.

These Buddhist monks in Thailand are clearly contemplating putting down their robes to play professionally. This photo, which shows them in flight, has landed them in serious trouble with Thailand's National Office of Buddhism. The Phucket News reports:

NOB Director Nopparat Benjawattananan said today (July 10) that the monks in the widely shared photo acted inappropriately and lack discipline. The organization will identify them, he said; they deserve punishment.
