Mister Ron's Basement #898

Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.' The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.

In today's tale, a nasty man comes up with a clever way of insulting his relations in 'Mr. Payson's Satirical Christmas.'

Time: approx fourteen and a half minutes
