    The Dancing Monkeys

There was a Prince named "Marvin". He had some monkeys who were trained to dance.

Being naturally great impersonate of men's actions, they showed themselves most suitable pupils, and when dressed in their rich clothes and masks, they danced as well as any of the courtiers.

 The spectacle was often repeated with great applause, till on one occasion a courtier, bent on mischief, took from his pocket a handful of nuts and threw them upon the stage.

 The Monkeys at the sight of the nuts forgot their dancing and became (as indeed they were) Monkeys instead of actors.

 Pulling off their masks and tearing their robes, they fought with one another for the nuts.

The dancing spectacle thus came to an end of the laughter and ridicule of the audience.
