Hear ye! Hear ye!
Whereas, reports have reached the capital that mice have overrun storehouses, cheese shops, bakeries and homes and;
Whereas, supplies of grain, cheese, bread and cake may be threatened and;
Whereas, the sources of these mice are both foreign and domestic, their numbers grow exponentially and;
Therefore, His Majesty King GarGar has declared a State of Emergency and;
Therefore, each adult male citizen is required to catch and kill one mouse per day for the next ten days. Dead mice shall be deposited at your local parish and shall be recorded by your local parish priest.
God bless Queen Pirouette and King GarGar!
