The Bald Knight

A certain knight grew old, his hair fell off, and he became bald. To hide the imperfection he wore a wig. But as he was riding out hunting with some others, a sudden gust of wind blew off the wig and exposed his bald pate. The company could not avoid laughing at the accident, and he himself laughed as loud as anybody, saying, "How could I expect to keep strange hair upon my head, when my own would not stay there?"
