Fools Gold By: Darkster
This is a “gag” I wrote for my DMA299 Media Production class. It was meant to be funny and have some sort of punchline or at least be a funny story but once I started writing this is what I got. Its a little on the sad side but it really hits home with me personally and how I feel in my day to day life right now. I hope you all like it. I will be posting more stuff like this in general from now on I think. We will see how it goes.
The fool goes to the princess after a visit from her prince charming and asks. What is it about him she loves? The princess says that he is loyal and kind and funny. The fool asks. Who is the loyalist person she knows? The princess is not sure. The fool says was it not him who has been by her side through all the hardships she has faced. Willing to take the blame for anything. The princess replied yes you are right you are the most loyal fool I know. The fool asks who is the kindest person she knows is. The princess is not sure. The fool says is it not he who tells her a tale or a joke to raise her spirit. Is he not the one who skips meals to save pennies only to get her what little he can? You are right you are the kindest fool I know. Finally the fool asks. Who is the funniest person she knows? She says of coarse the fool is. Yes. You are right says the fool. My humor and wit is known across the lands. Kings and men alike smile at me. Does this not make me the most loyal and kindest and humorous person you know? Does this not make you love me? The princess thought a moment and said. No. It just makes you a good fool. No one can love a fool.
