"A man had just presented his wife with the fox coat she had been coaxing and cajoling him to buy her for weeks.  Now he was perplexed to see her examining it with a sad look.  'What's the matter, sweetheart?  Don't you like the coat?' he asked.  'I love it,'she answered.  'It's just that I was feeling sorry for the poor little creature who was skinned alive so that I could have the pleasure of wearing this coat.'
'Why, thank you,' said the husband.'"
