The sultan liked cheese a lot. He had rooms
full of cheeses from all over the world;
but the palace filled up with mice that ate
the sultan's cheese, and his councillors
had to come up with a solution: to get rid
of the mice, they brought in cats; to get rid
of the cats, they brought in dogs; to get rid
of the dogs, they brought in lions; to get rid
of the lions, they brought in elephants; to get rid
of the elephants, they brought in mice...
a never ending circle.
This story, of Arabian origin, has a series
of odd happenings that are dealt with by a great
sense of humour.
