Many years ago, there was an Emperor, who was so excessively fond of new clothes, that he spent all his money on his clothes. He didn’t trouble himself about his soldiers, and his people. He had a different suit for each hour of the day. The emperor used to impose many taxes on his people to cover the expenses of his clothes. One day, the emperor declared a prize for any who could design and sew a new dress for him. A local dress maker decided to sew an illusion dress and convinced the emperor how beautiful this illusion dress is. The emperor wears the dress and goes out to the street to show the people the beauty of his new dress.
The people complimented and chanted how beautiful the emperor’s dress is, until a little boy shouted laughing, the emperor is naked. Then, the emperor realizes the truth.
