Good Counsel

Hubert Houben, Roger II of Sicily: A Ruler Between East and West, tr. Graham A. Loud and Diane Milburn (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2002), p. 18, quoting Ibn al-Athīr (1160-1233):
But Roger lifted his foot and made a great fart, saying 'By my faith, here is far better counsel than you have given.'
Hat tip: A friend.
