Supposedly the jester wasn't expected to be smart enough to follow the contemporary social graces; his assumed innocence allowed him to speak his mind. This freedom was often used to criticize the rules of society as well as the ruler himself. Thus the jester could put a moral or satirical spin on most anything.
