Mister Ron's Basement #1103

We are presenting some really, really early stories by Stephen Leacock, that originally appeared in Truth Magazine in the 1890s. They're brilliantly funny.

Here's a truly sad and hilarious story from 1896 about someone who simply couldn't walk out on anyone -- 'The Awful Fate of Melpomenus Jones.'

Time: approx eight minutes
