Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!


All is right with the world again. Ken and Heather are back to doing what they do best. Butchering great works of literature for your passing amusement.

This week Ken has a story for Heather called "The Compleat Criminal." Yes, it's really spelled that way. Yes, I think it's dumb, too.

But it was written by Edgar Wallace, who apparently wasn't a total moron, which is really saying something for a white man at the turn of the century, so...yay!

In addition to some surprised babbling up front we are treated to the usual brand of linguistic nonsense. What is the right side of 40? Who has Hollywood’s best eyebrows? How many ways can Heather mispronounce the phrase “county constabulary”?

"The Compleat Criminal" was published in 1928 in Wallace's collection entitled The Thief in the Night and Other Stories.
