April 2: A Spoon Dances in the Moonlight (Vol. 29, pp. 462-471)
Yet another selection from Darwin's "Voyage of the Beagle," and his South Seas travelogue. This time, it's the tale of an enormous spoon dressed in human finery and place upon a grave. As the natives chant over the grave in the moonlight, the spoon appears to dance. Not much of interest here.
