Fools are great. Everybody, including fools themselves can learn from their 
foolishness. I am a fool. What do you learn from me?

Fools learn through their own foolishness; wise women and men learn from 
the foolishnes of fools.

Would you say that the Spanish do not have a sense of humor - like the English 
and French do?


No use at all. 
Like zen practice, it has no goal. It's just an example of spontaneous 
expression in the moment of one's  buddha nature. (But in the long run it 
may help cultivate a non-attachment to one's own egolessness and a non-aversion 
to ego-puke in others.)
What is the use of tickle someone else ego?
