Two Twain parodies are worth a listen
Chapters and stories don’t align. 4:20 before the beginning of chapter 11 is a hilarious Sherlock Holmes parody. Follow an exploit of Hemlock Jones’s Inductive reasoning. I haven’t laughed so hard from an audible book ever! A dry Poe story follows but then about 30:30 into chapter 13 is the detective story of a stolen elephant which definitively skewers their methods in unsurpassed manner.
I didn’t find anything else memorable and many stories were terrible like discarded chapters from longer books, having no beginning or end or intrigue.
