Understanding the two clowns


Why and How dare the Gemarra claim that the highest mitsvah is not the man hiding his identity and working as a prison keeper to allow the Jewish Community to save Jewish captives.  The choice says a lot but the conclusion that two market clowns have all the merit of the market, a bit like the two boys covering up the Torah on Shabbat morning...needs some explaining.
To understand this you need another fact from the Torah:
There were only Magicians in Egypt both before and after Josef.  It was enough for Pharaoh to "know" about the existance of Josef, for these same Magicians to be called Priests if Egypt during that same period.
Saying Na Nach is the ultimate cure for sadness while a happy market is a market that praises the Tzaddik and praises Gd.  The leadership of the country needs to appeal to that market and they must therefore know the happy clowns.

The direct result of which is that the magicians of the country turn into priests!

(Look at the paragraph above).


If you wonder why the one spy is compared to two clowns it is to show that each individual clown has more merit than the single spy, and if there wete more than two the rule would still apply.
