      Actually, "Bo Shibari" is both, and possibly an older story. There is
      a kyogen, but there is also a comic kabuki done to it as well. I
      wouldn't be surprised if there was a bunraku play on it as well. It
      isn't as if these stories had any real copyright and had to stay
      within their own genre.
