|5 aUnder the divine right of Louis's system of government, Frog money was called Louis's, which gave the king the idea that all the money in France belonged to him and could be spent as he saw fit,
6 bSuch as on clothes,
7 And powdered wigs,
8 And outlandish hats,
9 And occasional wars,
10 cAnd most of all on parties,
11 Which were so big and expensive that several of the Louis's had to assign a dcardinal just to keep score on party games,
12 Because as everyone knows,
13 eFrogs cheat at party games.
14 Anyway, after fourteen Louis's had been partying for several hundred years, the Frog fmasses started to get cross.
CHAPTER 111 By an unfortunate coincidence, the English beheaded their king, gCharles I, at just about the same time that the Frog masses were starting to notice a few things about the divine right of Louis's.
2 hFor example, they had noticed that very few of the Frog masses ever got invited to Louis's parties.
3 They noticed that the party tax, which was paid by the Frog masses, amounted to almost i100 percent of their income.
4 jThey noticed that Frog high fashions were almost never worn by peasants.
5 kThey noticed that anyone who tried to attend one of Louis's parties without an invitation usually wound up in the Bastille or dead.
||6 lThey noticed that whenever there was some really hard work to be done, like a war with the English or an exploring expedition to the New World, it was the Frog masses who had to do it,
7 mIn cheap low-fashion clothes, like as not.
8 And when the Englishman named nCromwell cut off the king's head, they noticed that he actually got away with it.
CHAPTER 121 And then came Louis the Sixteenth, who looked exactly like a ofrog, which was unnerving even to the Frog masses.
2 Louis also had a wife, named pMarie Antoinette, who inflamed the peasants by offering to let them eat cake,
3 qWhich created shock waves of disappointment when no cake was forthcoming.
4 It occurred to the Frog masses that Louis and his wife might look better without heads,
5 Which was absolutely correct,
6 rAnd thus inaugurated the French Revolution.
7 Fortunately, the French had by this time invented the concept of democracy,
8 sWhich means rule by bloodthirsty masses of Frogs,
9 And wasn't very hard to invent, really,
10 tBecause the Americans had already done some of the preliminary groundwork,
11 Even though they were basically English and therefore stupid and ugly and not at all well dressed.
12 Anyway, the Frog masses, now calling themselves Jacobins,
