What does Ecclesiastes 7:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ecclesiastes 7:6

For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so [is] the
laughter of the fool
As thorns are weak, useless, and unprofitable; yea, hurtful and pernicious, and only fit for burning; so are foolish and wicked men, ( 2 Samuel 23:6 ) ( Isaiah 27:4 ) ; and as the noise and sound of the one under a pot is very short, they make a blaze for a while, and is soon over; so though the laughter of a fool is loud and noisy, it makes no melody, no more than the noise of thorns; and is but for a moment, and will be soon changed for weeping and howling, which will last for ever; see ( Job 20:5 ) ; this also [is] vanity;
the carnal mirth of wicked men.
