The Feast

After yet another disastrous project that resulted in higher taxes and more hardship imposed on the people, a wise man let it be known at court that he was a master chef. One day he announced a feast at which he would prepare the most delicious new food. The King and all of his advisers were invited.  When the various dignitaries arrived, full of anticipation, the food
was presented in great style. But it proved to be horrible and unpalatable.
 
“What is this abominable, poisonous mess you are asking us to eat?” cried the outraged guests. “You’re making us all sick!”
 
“This is my latest recipe. I made it up as I went along, putting in at random anything that came to hand – if it seemed like a good idea.”
 
“That’s absurd!” the King and all his advisors shouted at once.
 
“That’s no way to prepare a meal.”
 
“I agree,” said the wise one before making a hasty exit, “But I thought it would be interesting, nonetheless, to try out a recipe based on your way of doing things.”
