Mister Ron's Basement #1208

We continue to read assorted stories from 'Mrs. Partington's Carpet-Bag of Fun,' compiled by Samuel Putnam Avery back in 1854.

When Amelia Bloomer invented her namesake pantsuit for women back in the early 1850s, many writers made fun of them, as in this short piece, 'A Rhyme for the Bloomers.'

Time: approx three and a half minutes
