There is no joker. There is no joke. Joking is.

When K was very young he was sometimes poorly treated. Some of his so called friends would come up and spin him around and he would become dizzy. Then they would laugh and run away.

Finally one day, K asked them, "Why do you keep spinning me around?"

And they answered, "To make you the whirled teacher!"

you're transformed now and can change your question mark to an exclamation mark.

Wow!

I am wondering, is it just a myth that K was so 'vacant?' We may have accepted it as fact, but where are the facts? Who has said so? What have we read? Where is the evidence?

If I were a 14-year-old Indian kid, speaking nothing but Telugi and some old guy came up to me on the beach and started giving me the Theosophic spin, I'd stand there with my mouth open . . . and it's a matter of choice whether you call that a gape or agape.

Then he came to England and they all thought he was stupid. Who? Well, there were these lovely lilly-white folk from assertive aristocratic backgrounds confronted with a diminutive Indian waif trained like a whipped dog to spout Theosophic Truth in stilted English, half-crippled in too-tight shoes, suffering stomach cramps from force-fed porridge . . . and NO RICE! And HE was to be their God! . . . "He's a little . . . well, you know . . . isn't he?"

Huh?

Sorry, did you say something? (I was wiping away the drool.)

k was called an idiot then without a question mark.

After many years, he became all intelligent with a question mark.
