Laborious Day

One night, when the director of Peter Pan dismissed the cast after a long and discouraging rehearsal, J. M. Barrie, the play's author, demanded that they all return to the stage.

"Impossible!" shouted the exhausted director. "Why?" Barrie asked. "Crocodile under fourteen," the quick-thinking director replied. "Gone home."

[Labor laws, of course, stipulated that children under fourteen could work only a limited number of hours.]
