    I think he's laughing at the previous statement. That's how I take it.
    "Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."

    I always thought it was "poking" or "prodding".

    It looks like it's...giggling in agreement?
    ...snickering at or mocking?

    I dunno. Good question.

    I think it means "laugh at what I just wrote"
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    "Who is to say that I am not an instrument of karma? Indeed, who is to say that I am not the very hand of God himself, dispatched by the Almighty to smite the Philistines and hypocrites, to lay low the dishonest and corrupt, and to bust the jawbone of some jackass that so desperately deserves it?"
