The Tone of the Pardoner's tale is actually sincere. He freely admits what a shiester he The mood is a lttle unsettling if humerous at how he uses the naive. The irony of the Pardoner saying 'greed is the root of all evils', isn't really lost on the other pilgrims. I suppose the moral in this all is in the corruprion of the Church.
