Alex Ox and his x-rays

Alex Ox from Oxford took extraordinary x-rays. He x-rayed an excellent shot of Xerxes, King of Persia. Next he explained to King Xerxes how the x-ray tube worked, but it exploded. As Alex Ox ran for the exit he lost his Xerox machine as well as his x-ray machine. Never mind he thought I'll get some new ones this X-mas. When X-mas came he got an axe and xylophone instead of a Xerox machine and a x-ray machine. Alex drew a large X on a log and axed it with his new axe. Next X-mas Alex was exited at playing the xylophone for Xerxes the King of Persia, who had forgiven him for the explosion of his x-ray tube.
