Mister Ron's Basement #1109

As often as we've read George W. Peck's stories, we have rarely featured his most famous creation, 'Peck's Bad Boy.' We will be rectifying that this week with stories from the 1883 book 'Peck's Bad Boy and His Pa.'

Today's bit of mirthful nastiness is called 'Peck's Bad Boy in Love'

Time: approx eight and a half minutes

Mister Ron's Basement #1107

SUNDAY SALAD SURPRISE! We have discovered two or three so far unread SPOOPENDYKE stories!

No doubt we will really run out of them soon. But in the meantime, we offer a very short Stanley Huntley story about a woman placing an obituary advertisement called 'One Item of Expense,' then Mr. Spoopendyke dishes out the grisly details about dueling to his wife in 'The Code Fully Explained.' Both stories are from 1882.

Time: approx eight minutes
