Mister Ron's Basement #1500 (Part THREE of EIGHT)
Welcome to the 1500th Episode of Mister Ron's Basement!
We are presenting this Episode in EIGHT Parts, one per day for eight days.
In 1906, Ellis Parker Butler published 'Perkins of Portland' a book collection of eight stories of the world's greatest Advertising Man. Most of these stories had appeared in assorted popular magazines. Episode #1500 will be readings of these incredibly funny, and surprisingly modern Perkins of Portland stories. Yes, we have read some of these before in early episodes of the Basement.
Today's piece of one of the funniest ever written. We have presented it twice before! Go ahead and download and listen to it -- Mister Ron pays the freight! It is called 'The Adventure of the Lame and the Halt'.
It originally appeared with the same title in Leslie's Monthly Magazine in January of 1904. Your comments are welcome!
Time: approx twenty five minutes
