Mister Ron's Basement #911

SUNDAY SALAD offers TWO Stanley Huntley stories -- the first is an 1883 short, funny ditty about a dying man and his writer wife, called 'Of A Literary Bent'. Then we have a Spoopendyke story that was reprinted in a New Zealand newspaper in 1883, and credited to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle (we couldn't find it there). This demonstrates the global popularity of the Spoopendykes back then, making it a true mystery why they fell into obscurity in the 20th century. It is called 'Turning the Seat.'

Time: approx six and a half minutes
