how did the hundredth tiger take its revenge on the tiger king?

On the birthday of the crown prince, the king bought a tiny little wooden tiger for his son. It had been carved by an unskilled carpenter. Its surface was rough, tiny slivers of wood stood up like quills all over it. One of those slivers pierced the Maharaja's right hand. He pulled it out with his left hand and continued to play with the prince. Next day, the infection flared in the Maharaja's right hand and in four days he developed a suppurating sore which spread all over the arm. Three famous surgeons were brought in from Madras. They decide to operate after a consultation. The three surgeons who performed the operation came out of the theatre and announced that the operation had been successful but the Maharaja was dead. It was the manner in which the hundredth tiger took its final revenge upon the Tiger King.

The rumored hundredth tiger was not exactly dead.The tiger was of old age and due to the sound of the gun shot,it fainted.And the king without realising this,boasted on how he cheated fate.It is quite ironic that in the end,the king's end was met with an infection caused by the poorly crafted tiger toy.
