The town, supposed to be somewhere in Poland, was supposed to be populated by notoriously stupid residents. There are numerous tales of their idiotic exploits and the most famous is the story the story of the people of Chelm and the moon. The people of Chelm would go outside at night and admire the moon. Indeed, they loved the sight of the moon so much they were always frustrated they could not see it every night. They decided the best course of action would be to capture the moon in a barrel so they could gaze upon it whenever they chose.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4412422469<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Fiction<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Humorous fiction<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:illustrator<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4412422469#Person\/hoffmann_omer<\/a>> ; # Omer Hoffmann<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The sages of Chelm and the moon<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1110171489<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1110171489#PublicationEvent\/barnsley_s_yorkshire_green_bean_books_2019<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4412422469#Agent\/green_bean_books<\/a>> ; # Green Bean Books<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781784383695<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1110171489<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
