A Fool and His Money

The peasant isn’t smart by any means because of his situation, but his folly is enough to make a king laugh out of the ridiculousness of the entire situation.

The peasant counts each laugh in talers, and he still doesn’t know how much he has, so he gives them away for what he thinks is the better deal.

A fool is the only kind of person who can fool the dishonest, because they have no knowledge of their own schemes until they’ve already unfolded. So he gives his fake money away in exchange for luck and the coat of a dishonest man, and even though he doesn’t know how much profit he’s made from this deal, he still goes home smarter and satisfied.
