Pigs and Kings

The pigs know that the mud is actually quite nice. It is cool, it is moist, and you never have to clean yourself. The wise king knows that the pigs are right, but he knows he is not supposed to wallow in the mud. Instead, he is required to wear a clown-suit that all kings wear, which is covered in silly white circular stones. “It’s Ok,” He says, “This is my mud – I will wallow in it!,” and he laughs. He stays healthy and wealthy for many years, while the pigs point at him, laugh, and say “Look at that clown! He thinks he is so wise!” They do not know that he is laughing with them.

The foolish king thinks that he is better then the pigs, and he is jealous of their happiness. He throws at them the stones on his clown-suit. The pigs get very angry, and overtake him in a tidal wave of mud. When he finally stops fighting, the foolish king realizes that he is much happier this way. He never really wanted to be king, anyways. In truth, he was throwing the stones to get rid of them.

So, in the end, everything is right again.
