Pull the costume off the jester

GYE Corp. Tuesday, 08 May 2012

Once upon a time, a king wanted to see who among his servants was truly brave and strong. He had one of his foolish court jesters dress up in a large dragon outfit that looked truly strong and fierce. The king then called his two most trusted servants into the arena to fight this dragon, his mightiest warrior and his wisest advisor. The warrior entered the arena to fight, but when he caught a glimpse of the frightening monster coming towards him, he fled. However, the wise advisor thought to himself, "the king is beloved to me and I am beloved to him; it cannot be that the king would send me to fight such a monster and surely be killed. It must be a trick." And as he thought thus, he went forth and, with a great gasp from the crowd, pulled the costume off the jester in front of everyone. And the king awarded his wise advisor the highest honors. But the mighty warrior was so ashamed that he ran away from the palace and never returned.
