It is like the king who sent his son to a far away place to learn first hand how the peasants lived. The prince was told to let no one else know his true identity. During the time he would live among the simple folk, he was to dress and act in all ways as they do.
But the king was afraid his son might forget who he really was. When he would act and speak like the peasants, he might lose his royal identity and absorb their faults into his personality. For this reason the king told his son to put aside time each day to remember that he was the emperor's son.
Similarly, a person's soul has a spark of divinity. Forgetting one's lofty identity, one might pick up bad habits. Therefore, remember at all times that you are a child of the great King and it is not befitting to act in a lowly and degrading manner.
Some of the jokes below are lowly and degrading. I recommend skipping them if you are easily offended. O am unsure if I should have included this, but I am giving a warning.
