Mr. Jester, by Fred Saberhagen
Mr. Jester was a 1967 Hugo award nominee in the short story category. It's a Berserker story, of which there were many, most of which I have not read. This story does show Saberhagen's humor, but I think it would be hard to really get it without the context. So it's a toss-off.
