To Beef or Not to Beef...

The Facts in the Case of the Great Beef Contract

by Mark Twain
Adapted and read by Catfish Baruni
In as few words as possible I wish to lay before the nation what share, howsoever small, I have had in this matter, this matter which has so exercised the public mind, engendered so much ill-feeling, and so filled the newspapers of both continents with distorted statements and extravagant comments—on or about the 10th of October, 1861, John Wilson Mackenzie, of Rotterdam, Chemung County, New Jersey, contracted with the General Government to furnish to General Sherman the sum total of thirty barrels of beef.
The bill has yet to be paid.
Join Catfish Baruni as he uses nothing but his wit (and select obscenities) and a bootlegged copy of PowerPoint to share with the world his version of Mark Twain’s classic comedic short story, The Facts in the Case of the Great Beef Contract.
