Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Nah, never mind, how about we just read another story.
This week, Ken gets to read an odd little story by the apparently famous (though we'd never heard of him) Ring Lardner. "Haircut" is a charming, folksy, storyteller-y short story with more suspicious character crammed into 8 pages than you can shake a stick at (or some other olde timey idiom).
Along the way, Ken and Heather talk Music Man re-writes, grave robbing vengeance, and (stick around until the end) a Campfire Classics animal costume calendar.
"Haircut" was first published in 1925, and is his most republished and anthologized story.
