once upon a time, there was a king who ruled a great and glorious nation. Favourite amongst his
subjects was the court painter of whom he was very proud. Everybody agreed this old
man planted the greatest pictures in the whole kingdom and the king would spend hours each day
gazing at them in wonder. However, one day a dirty and dishevelled stranger presented himself at
the court claiming that in fact he was the greatest painter in the land. The indignant king decreed a
competition would be held between the two artists, confident it would teach the vagabond an

admiringly, a sparrow perched high up on the rafters of the hall swooped down and hungrily tried
to snatch one of the grapes from the painted bowl only to hit the canvas and fall down dead with
shock at the feet of the king. Aha!’ exclaimed the king. 'My artist has produced a painting so
wonderful it has fooled nature herself, surely you must agree that he is the greatest painter who
ever lived!' But the vagabond said nothing and stared solemnly at his feet. wow, pun the blanket

motionless and said nothing. Growing impatient, the king stepped forward and reached out to
grab the blanket only to freeze in horror at the last moment. You see,' said the tramp quietly,
there is no blanket covering the painting. This is actually just a painting of a cloth covering a
painting. And whereas your famous artist is content to fool nature, I' made the king of the whole
country look like a clueless little twat
