"And that's how it's done", the Old Master said.
The "new" Jesters have pretty big shoes to fill...   :)

Nice one, Erik!
Jesters also had a serious role to play at court which was to remind the monarch that he or she was a human being and so mortal.  That's why jesters could get away with saying things to or about the monarch others (even great lords) dare not say.

That's great, Erik!

Jesters were also known as 'Fools.'
The Fool in Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters sleeps outside the door of his master's bedchamber as a token of his devotion, as well as to keep out drafts.
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Aw the The Jesters' lesson set up is so cute yet it also made me laugh and smile.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your Playmobil collection is, it’s what you do with it that matters.
