"Every Sunday afternoon the people of Leipzig would gather in the city's magnificent zoo, and Leopold would tell tales of faraway places."  The people loved these tales of adventure and of amazing places.  But one day, a visiting professor gave a lecture on his travels around the world.  These stories were so boring compared to Leopold's that the people either left or fell asleep.  Outraged, the professor swore to expose Leopold as a liar and have him locked up in jail.  What will happen to poor Leopold?
