Mister Ron's Basement #1323
Our Saturday Night Special story comes from page one of the Brooklyn Eagle from May 30, 1880. The story is unsigned, and credited to the San Francisco Post, but we strongly suspect the hand of Stanley Huntley (who was a huge Edgar Allan Poe fan) is involved here.
In any event, even though the report features a well-known San Francisco judge of the time, the tale is so ludicrous as to obviously be a work of fiction. Anyway, listen and judge for yourself. It certainly is among the funniest pieces we've ever presented. Your comments are most welcome.
It's called 'The Raven in Court.'
Time: approx ten minutes
