Summary - The fairies and the two humpbacks.

A humpback saw fairies dancing and singing, 'Diluain, Dimàirt, Diciadain' [Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday]. He added 'Diardaoin, Dihaoine, Disathairn' [Thursday, Friday, Saturday]. The fairies were so pleased with this that they removed his hump. Another humpback heard them singing and added 'Didòmhnaich' [Sunday]. This displeased the fairies so much that they gave him the hump they removed from the first fellow.
