This was sent to me

Along with an advertisement for Viagra.

TWO MEN, one who always spoke the truth and the other who told
nothing but lies, were traveling together and by chance came to
the land of Apes. One of the Apes, who had raised himself to be
king, commanded them to be seized and brought before him, that he
might know what was said of him among men. He ordered at the
same time that all the Apes be arranged in a long row on his
right hand and on his left, and that a throne be placed for him,
as was the custom among men. After these preparations he
signified that the two men should be brought before him, and
greeted them with this salutation: What sort of a king do I seem
to you to be, O strangers? The Lying Traveler replied, You seem
to me a most mighty king. And what is your estimate of those
you see around me? These, he made answer, are worthy

Is this from a story or computer generated? I think it's part of a fable of Aesop's.
