“The schnitzel has the reputation of reducing wrinkles. Mrs. Rigadin secretly applies this beauty recipe on her face every night and of course she does not throw away the food after this use. Rigadin was forced to eat schnitzel every day without knowing why. Not being able to bear this diet, he gets into a terrible rage and discovers his wife’s secret. She will either have to keep her wrinkles or eat schnitzel herself every day.”
