Its a really old and a not very good joke and is based on a misconception of Buddhism and what the Dalai Lama teaches.
The Dalai Lama goes into a pizza shop and says "Make me one with everything"
"One with everything" is meant to be the goal of Buddhist practice and is also a type of pizza that contains all ingredients.
Do you get it now?
Or would you like a pizza napoli?
The only 'funny' thing about the video was the Dalai Lama laughing at Stenovic's embarrassment and the fact that the breakfast show host was summarily chastised by his peers around the world. Not that I suggest that anyone engage in Shaudenfreude, but, the episode was one of pure idiocy. Perhaps next time he'll think before he says something dim-witted.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
