The Calico Cat by Charles Miner Thompson(1908)

Sometimes a character gets stuck in the mud. Every time they try to get out of trouble they accidentally jump head first deeper and deeper into trouble. This funny little story perfectly illustrates that very situation.

Solomon is excited about his new post on the local grand jury. Here is a job that could in his opinion propel him into a prominent political office. A moment of anger gets him stuck in the mud and he spends the rest of the story trying to leap out of it to no avail. Here’s some advice. Try not to get provoked by The Calico Cat.
