Mister Ron's Basement #1116

George W. Peck's 1883 sequel to 'Peck's Bad Boy and His Pa' was called 'The Grocery Man and Peck's Bad Boy.' In this book, the Bad Boy is a bit older -- probably a teenager, but still full of nasty (but hilarious) tricks. Today, we feature one of the Bad Boy's most notorious tricks -- 'The Variegated Dogs.'

Time: approx eight and a half minutes
