Crooks thinks that Lennie is crazy. During this era, mentally challenged, retarded and crazy were considered the same thing. Initially Crooks enjoys taunting Lennie. He is entertained by the fact that Lennie thinks like a child or a crazy man. Lennie’s very simple minded devotion to one man (George) confounds him. Crooks thinks that he can tell Lennie anything and it would not matter. Lennie would forget or get the story wrong.
