One day the burly barman is chiding him, "You need to set goals and objectives to give your life meaning. What are yours?"
The jester looks up from his drink and says hopefully, "To be 'Customer of the Month'!"

I have mentioned before my once-upon-a-time weakness for the International Herald Tribune.... I had a particular fondness for the 'funny page'. One of the regular cartoons was 'The Wizard of Id', a strip by a couple of guys called Parker & Hart, set in medieval times. One of the stock characters was the court jester - who was a hopeless lush and spent his whole time in a bar.
