Un rey vago, goloso, caprichoso y prepotente impone a su pueblo dictámenes absurdos, todos dirigidos a satisfacer su vanidad. Cuando a él, tan lampiño, se le ocurre tener un bigote negro, tupido y bien largo, ni médico ni brujo ni boticario (ni medicina ni brebaje ni jarabe) logran ese propósito. Pero el pueblo, con mucha inventiva, aprovecha el conocimiento de las debilidades de su rey para lograr liberarse de su dominio.

A lazy, greedy, capricious and arrogant king imposes absurd opinions on his people, all aimed at satisfying his vanity. When he, so hairless, comes up with a thick, long, black mustache, neither a doctor nor a witch doctor nor an apothecary (neither medicine nor concoction nor syrup) achieve that purpose. But the people, with much inventiveness, take advantage of the knowledge of their king's weaknesses to free themselves from his domination.
