Rule me this…

Q: Why was the king only a foot tall? ruler
A:  Because he was a ruler!

Explanation: A ruler is one who rules, that is, one who is in charge like a king or a president.  A ruler is also a stick used for measuring items.  In this case a ruler is 12 inches long, a foot long.  This joke plays on the double meaning of the work ruler.  This joke really measures up!
