A fool falls out of a sixth story window. He is lying on the ground with a big crowd around him. A cop walks over and says,' What happened?' The fool says,' I don't know. I just got here.'
In the old days all great emperors always had one fool in their court. They had many wise men, counsellors, ministers and prime ministers, but always one fool. All the intelligent and wise emperors all over the world, in the East and the West, had a court joker, a fool. Why? Because there are things so-called wise men will not be able to understand, that only a foolish man can understand. Because the so-called wise are so foolish that their cunningness and cleverness closes their minds. A fool is simple, and was needed, because many times the so-called wise would not say something because they were afraid of the emperor. A fool is not afraid of anybody else. He will speak, whatever the consequences. A fool is a man who will not think of the consequences.
