Mister Ron’s Basement # 1855
Time for some extremely short and extremely funny pieces by Max Adeler from the Saturday Evening Post of 1873.
Today’s tale concerns a newfangled invention of an improved stomach pump which included a ‘revrersible combination valve.’ Pandemonium, of course, ensues. We call this story ‘Dr. Bender.’
Time: approx five and a half minutes
