Till Eulenspiegel's 19th Adventure:
How He Got Hired by a Baker at Brunswick and Baked Owls and Monkeys


Fortune brought Till to the city of Brunswick where he happened upon an inn where the city's Bakers often met. As Till dallied at the inn, he drew the attentionof a Baker who lived nearby. the Baker called Till over and asked him what his trade was? Till, our noble and well-beloved master of jests, was wily and answered "I am a baker's man." The Baker was delighted and answered "I need you, if you will work for me! For I have no man to assist me!" Till agreed, and after he had worked for the Baker for two days, the Baker commanded Till to the baking that evening, as the Baker could not help him until the morning. Till asked "But what do you want me to bake?" the Baker, a man who angered easily, answered scornfully "A baker's man needs to ask what he should bake? What is it that you bake? Owls and monkeys?" The Baker then stormed off and went to bed.

So Till went into the bakery and made up all the dough into the shapes of owls and monkeys, which he then baked in the oven. In the morning, the Baker woke up and went into the bakery to assist Till with the morning work. There he found no loaves of bread or rolls, but masses of buns shaped like owls and monkeys. In a rage, he shouted at Till "What have you done?" till answered "I did what you told me to do! I baked owls and monkeys!" The Baker was furious and called Till and idiot, swearing that no one would buy such bread! He then grabbed Till by the head and demanded that he be repaid for the wasted dough. Till asked, "If I pay you for the dough, can I keep the goods?" The Baker responded that he didn't care what happened to the bread, so Till paid the Baker and took all the owls and monkeys away in a basket.

Till took his basket of bread and stood by the Church gate, since it was Saint Nicholas' Eve. As the people of Brunswick came out of the church, he sold all of his owls and monkeys at great price, since the people of Brunswick were delighted with anything novel and new. He made a much greater profit from the sale than he had paid the baker for the dough, which he was quite proud of. Soon it happened that the Baker heard about this and, in a fury, ran to St. Nicholas' Churck to demand his share of Till's profit, or perhaps to add charges fo the use of the oven to the charge for the dough. Till had already left by the time the Baker arrived, and although he looked far and wide, the Baker never found him. This feat of Till's shows plainly, that there is nothing so vain or foolish in the world that some profit can't be made from it by those who work for it.
