    Would hate to be a court jester. Turnover must be VERY high.

    Have more than thou showest, Speak less than thou knowest, Lend less than thou owest, Ride more than thou goest, Learn more than thou trowest, Set less than thou throwest; Leave thy drink and thy whore, And keep in-a-door, And thou shalt have more Than two tens to a score. (King Lear 1. 4. 71-80) The advice of fools and jesters oft goes unheeded.

    Now that is a real royal CRITIC in action.

    Any successful comic will tell you, “You got to know your audience!”

    You know what the truism is; “Live by the word and die ON the word!”

    He’s not dead. He’s just hammered.

    Well, there’s lots of different ways to commit suicide…especially assisted suicide.

    Kind of puts the lie to the Saul Alinski rule that “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.”

    LordDogMore, upon further investigation, I would say the Jester’s depression became much deeper AFTER he stepped under the large mallet

    Comments today are almost as good as the strip.

    Love the look on the King’s face Wiley. Thanks for the laugh.

    Was that the jester from “Wizard of ID”? Is so he was probably so hammered he didn’t feel the hammer.

    If the Court Jester’s job was the most dangerous, then the Court Investigator’s job was a close second.

    Really, though, this is covered by the old show business rule: never upstage the main act.

    To laugh is a sin?… To evoke a gentle grin?… It’s for the jester to jest…. Sacred waters to test… So the big can feel small… Like they’re one of us all… But the truth is a bitter pill… And in a moment of haste… Might the jested often kill… And the jester just so much paste…

    Some blood oozing out on the carpet would have been a nice visual… or is this a family comic strip?

    He clearly died of natural causes. It was only natural for him to expire after being crushed by a huge mallet.

    Thus, endeth the “reform progressive movement by the Liberals ” in the White House by the mid-term Congressional elections and the issuance in of the Far Right Conservative and Tea-Party Republican caucus into the House of Representatives and the Senate of the honorable Congress to make “the new (old) wave over the next two years to the present interloper to the White House…..President Barack Obama…..
