Mister Ron's Basement #1255

SUNDAY SALAD kicks up the Basement's tribute to Edgar Allan Poe's Bicentennial Celebration this month! Stanley Huntley often spoofed well-known authors in his humor column, but one of his favorites was Poe. From a number of accounts, Stanley Huntley had committed many of Poe's stories and poems to memory, and would recite them at the drop of a hat.

Today we feature a brilliant satire of Poe's detective fiction that (almost) could have been written by Poe himself! From 1880, we present 'The Murder in the Rue Rivoli.'

Time: approx ten minutes
