Default Finish Data's Joke

I was watching my copy of The Outrageous Okona. At one point Data starts to tell a joke to Guinan with the following opening sentence:

A monk, a clone, and a Ferengi decide to go bowling together...

But a page prevents him from finishing it. So my challenge is to submit punchlines to the joke, comment on each other's idea of the best one, and so forth. What can I say, I like to whack at hornet's nests.

Here's my first "sample" punchline:

A monk, a clone, and a Ferengi decide to go bowling together, but somehow on the way all three get beamed to a Borg cube and get thrown into a cell to await their inevitable assimilation. The question of who will be assimilated first comes up. The monk steeples his fingers and prepares to meditate. "It doesn't matter, the Prophets will guide me." The Ferengi takes out his wallet and starts to count his latinum. "I'm not quite as rich as I'd hoped to be, but at least I have enough to bribe the Grand Arbiter and get into the Divine Treasury." The clone just starts to hum. The monk glares at him and the Ferengi quickly hides his money. "What are you doing?" they ask. "Oh, I'll be safe. In this day and age even drones aren't tasteless enough to say 'Send in the clones.'"

Zeke: It comes nateurally to him.

mudshark: I don't expect Nate to make sense, really -- it's just a bad idea.

Sa'ar Chasm on the forum: Sit back, relax, and revel in the insanity.

Adam Savage: I reject your reality and substitute my own!

Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Crow T. Robot: Oh, stop pretending there's a plot. Don't cheapen yourself further.
