Short Story #239: The Night the Bed Fell by James Thurber
Title: The Night the Bed Fell
Author: James Thurber
ReflectionThe style of this definitely reminds me of Twain. There's a "big yarn" element to it that always brings me back to The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. A joke that's told with no real sense. But Thurber does add elements of the absurd that one could easily imagine informing and influencing modern comedy like Mel Brooks.
