Once upon a time in old Japan, the Kingdom of the Sea was governed by a wonderful King. The jellyfish found a wife for the King, whom he loved dearly. Sadly she became gravely ill, her cure he was told would be a monkey’s liver. The jellyfish returned empty handed from his travels to find the cure. The Queen died, and in the king’s sadness he removed the shell and bones of the jellyfish, and was condemned to float forever in the ocean.
