I thought it was a bar stool?

I believe attempts were made to retrieve him from his enchantment-- 
which, after all, was accidental, and an unfortunate consequence of his 
own interference-- but there was something about him that refused to be 
transformed back into human shape. Perhaps he found being a barstool 
restful, or being a barstool suited his personality.

What I found disturbing was the fact that there were no consequences for 
the Emir of sending out his assassins for no particular reason. Yes, 
he's dotty, and they were assassins, so one guesses they deserved the 
inconveniences heaped upon them. But sending assassins to wipe out an 
entire community, to avenge *what*? At the least, the man needs a keeper 
of some kind.
