Mister Ron's Basement #1123
SUNDAY SALAD offers a fascinating look at how the global popularity of the Spoopendykes led to newspapers in other countries 'localizing' their stories for their readers. We start by replaying 'Misled By A Pattern,' which appeared in the Brooklyn Eagle in 1881, then reading the same story as it appeared in a New Zealand newspaper three years later, with major changes for the kiwi folk. The newer version is called 'Mrs. Spoopendyke Misunderstands.'
Time: approx eleven minutes
