Mister Ron's Basement #1504
This week, we will be reading stories about that new-fangled invention, The Phonograph. It is getting a little difficult to find funny stories about 'talking machines' that we haven't already read (yes there are lots of them scattered around the Basement), but today's story is a doozy!
From 1881, we present Arthur Lot's tale of married life, a mother-in-law, and a tampered-with talking machine entitled 'Our Phonograph.'
Time: approx thirteen and a half minutes
The Mister Ron's Basement Full Catalog can be found at:
John Kelly of The Washington Post has written a lively piece about the Basement. You can read it here.
In tomorrow's episode, we will announce the winner of the 1906 'Pigs is Pigs' book!
