Mister Ron's Basement #887
Mike Fink was a genuine historical character -- often known as 'The King of the Flatboat Men' -- whose legend became exaggerated over the years into tall tales as wild as those of Paul Bunyan or Pecos Bill. This week, we will feature stories of Mike Fink from four different authors.
Today's tale concerns Mike Fink's overbearing sense of humor and his expectation of full attention from his audience. From 1888, we present 'Jokes Made to Laugh At' by Colonel Frank Triplett.
This episode is dedicated to the swell folks of the Northern Virginia Podcasting Meetup Group! Time: approx eight minutes
