No no no nooooo, it was actually:
"Knowin' ewes is better than evilin' ewes!"
The Mad King was mis-quoting a conversation he overheard between two Royal Rams as he took his morning walk through the farmland.

Why do they refer to mental illnesses or defects as 'disease'?
Aren't all diseases by their definition, contagious? So, is mental disease capable of being spread by contact?
What about sustained exposure to a person(s) with mental disease?
Are you at risk of infection? Can you build up an immunity?
Pun intended, Mister Somersmead. 😑
