Honkmotherian Scriptures: The Nine Pillars of Fun (IV-VI)
IV. When a Jester hears of the Grand Joke of the Universe, he lets it be his guide. When an average person hears of the Grand Joke of the Universe, he believes half of it, and doubts the other half. When a foolish person hears of the Grand Joke of the Universe, he laughs out loud at the very idea. If he didn't laugh, it would not be a joke, would it?

V. The best Jesters are those the people hardly know exist. The next best is a Jester who is loved and praised. Next comes the one who is feared. The worst one is the Jester that is despised. When a great Jester has accomplished their task, the people say, "this was so much fun," oblivious of what’s upstream of the Stream of Fun, much like they are oblivious of the Grandest of Jesters, the Uppest of Upstreams, the Blankest of Slates.

VI. As is the Blankest of Slates, so is the mind of the Jester. They see the mind of the people as their own mind. To those who are good they treat as good. To those who aren't good they also treat as good. They trust people who are trustworthy. They also trust people who aren't trustworthy. Thus they attain goodness and trust, lest the manure-minded serious people stop the stream of Fun.
