jokes and banter. He had seven ministers, who were great jokers. They were similar to the king not only wit, but also character - large, corpulent, oily ... King's taste much better fit, if someone brought something other than he said. The king was of course his Fool. He needed a bit of folly. It was not just a jester clown, was a addition, a dwarf and a cripple. Dwarves lived in these times at court just as common as clowns. Many things the king would be hard to spend my days without both: no fool, with whom he could
laugh, and not a dwarf, which could be mocked. Jester was called Jumper. This name it probably has allocated seven ministers of his inability to walk like other people. Jumpers walking resembled something between jumping and plazením. These movements had in comfort king who was not satisfied with his corpulent figure
. Jumper, though he could not walk well, had great strength in the arms. The tree or a rope carried amazing dexterity. Jumper was inseparable Trippetta girlfriend, who was also dwarfed, however, for its charm and unique beauty has been admired and petted each.
Once the king decided to hold a masquerade ball. Everything was decorated and has burned with impatience. Many have had their masks ready in advance, only the king and his seven ministers were embarrassed. The King therefore summoned Trippetta and Skokan. When they came to the king, just sat with all the seven members of the wine. King knew that Frog does not like wine. I liked him when he could get a drink Skokan and "náladičce. Král Skokan asked whether he drank wine and then either come up with an original mask for a masquerade ball. Frog could not think of anything and the king poured another glass and forced him to drink. Trippetta fell before the throne of the king to his knees and implored him to save her friend. The king was angry, forsaken by her side and her vchrstl content cup in his face. The girl rose with difficulty and there was a deafening silence. Soon, however, was interrupted by a low, but obnoxious protracted croaks. The king accused him of a dwarf, but he asserted that it was not him. One of the courtiers said that it was probably the parrot out the window. The king was equally convinced that it was the Frog, who ground his teeth. After the incident with a parrot and Trippetta Jumper recalled a masquerade in which eight people are needed. Masque is called the Eight Chained orangutans. This game is cute, which causes panic among the women. King was excited by the masquerade and the Frog promised that kings and ministers to decorate like orangutans and binds the chains that seemed to escape his guards. As promised to fulfill it. Converted for the orangutans using flax and is bound chains. Chain of each man's bandaged and then stretched across the rest of the chain twice. The hall where the prom was held, was a tall circular room with one window. The night was lit by a huge chandelier, which was forced by the weight of the roof. But this time the Frog Trippetta advice
chandelier removed. So lights candles and torches. Orangutans with your output wait until midnight. When the clock strikes faded away, burst into the room and causing panic. All the people rushed to the door, but they were locked in the King's command. In the crush of ever seen the chain, which formerly hung on the chandelier, slowly falling down. Orangutans get up the chain and a jumper to increase the buzz is hung on a hook. A kind of invisible force pulled the hook so high that the orangutans have collided into the crowd. The audience settled down and burst into laughter. Frog yelled that take care of them, took the torch and jump on the king's head. Bent at the torch as it wanted to find out who they are. Then he whistled, and the chain flew violently up. There was a grinding of teeth Skokanových. Jester put the torch to the king's hair and it suddenly flared up. For a while orangutans were on fire. Jester climbed slightly higher to escape the flames. Then last he spoke: "Now I can see clearly what people are hiding behind these masks. It's a mighty king and his seven closest advisers - the king, who is not afraid to hit a defenseless girl, and seven councilors, who did such a meanness of ABET. And I I am simply Hop-Frog, the jester, and this is my last joke. " Work
revenge was complete, eight corpses swung in chains - a fetid, blackened, hideous, shapeless mess. Frog after he threw the torch, climbed to the ceiling and disappeared. It is said that Trippetta, hidden on the roof of the hall, helped his friend to perform this fiery revenge, and that they then managed to escape with the old
homeland. Nobody is ever since seen.
