Caps for Sale from Ben Ish Hai's Haggada?

Is the book Caps For Sale, published in 1938, taken from the Haggada of the Ben Ish Hai?

Or did they both get the story from an earlier source (as Wikipedia says - "Based on a folktale")?

Yeah, work is slow on Dec. 31st, and the blogging urge returned, at least temporarily.
