The Fool


One day a king called his faithful court jester into the palace. ‘Little jester. I want you to take this wand and search the entire kingdom, and when you find someone more foolish than yourself, present to them this wand.’ The jester went on his way, and looked everywhere. He searched here, and there, every place he could find. As he returned, he noticed the king had taken ill. ‘Little jester, I am very sick, and will be going far, far away.’ ‘Have you prepared for your journey Sire?’ said the jester. ‘Why, no. I haven’t’ the king said. ‘Then Your Majesty, I must present to you this wand!’ Would the jester give YOU the wand?
