Storyline

Once upon a time a professor ordered the wax figure of King Woof, a celebrated eastern potentate who had died from eating too much pomegranate juice and who had a reputation for making history. The professor noised it abroad that he had secured the figure at an enormous expense. Everybody was crazy to see it. But it caught on fire on shipboard and the professor was up against it. Now just as he was figuring on how to get out of his hard luck, a hobo wandered in and the professor pressed him into service with the promise of ten beans. He dressed the hobo like King Woof and set him on a pedestal. Business was poor, however, and he sold the kink to a restaurant keeper. The figure was the middle piece of a fountain and looked so life-like that the guest caught it eating food. The restaurateur got wise and nailed the "kink" in a box and threw him into the lake.
