    Thurber's The Owl who was God


    You can fool too many of the people too much of the time
    Is the moral of Thurbers' The Owl Who Was God is a trandformation of a famous English saying?

    What's more, do you know different way of interpreting this fable?
    It could be seen as a criticism of the way people can follow any 'prophet' but I don'y manage to put it in the context of 1940s America.

    Thank you!

    It's modified from something Abraham Loncon said:
    You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
