Once upon a time there was a king who believed he was handsome. Hehad a mirror and used to say all the time: “Beautiful mirror, tell me sweetly, Who in the world is more handsome than me?”

His wife tolerated this for one, two, three, four times, but finally she said:

“Keep quiet, my king, there’s nothing to do, There’s someone I know more handsome than you.”
