It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor.

    Completely off point, but have you seen the Bud Light commercials about the emperor without clothes? Rather funny, even if I’d never drink Bud Light or pretty much any other light “beer.” Dilly, dilly! 😉

      I haven’t seen that commercial but I’ll keep an eye out for it. Thanks, Janet.

        I think it’s called “Royal Bath” if you want to look it up online.

    But sometimes you get an emperor who is a half wit, and we all know where that leads!

      People with no clothes…? Responding to half-witted monarchs like Mad King George contributed to the birth of our constitutional system with means to curtail naked entitlement.
