Norm Risser's "Grange Anecdote" was a tradition at Wyanoke campfires for years. 
His delivery, and the little note cards he read from were as much a part of the experience as the anecdote itself.

Here it is, courtesy of Dave Tucker.  I've seen several versions of this, and am never sure if what I'm reading is the actual version Norm read.
What do you think?
