In the Angler’s Rest, a bucolic English pub, drinking hot scotch and lemon, sits one of Wodehouse’s greatest raconteurs. Mr. Mulliner, his vivid imagination lubricated by Miss Postlethwaite the barmaid, has fabulous stories to tell of the extraordinary behavior of his far-flung family. One of them concerns Wilfred, who lights on the formula for Buck-U-Uppo, a tonic given to elephants to enable them to face tigers with the necessary nonchalance. Its explosive effects on a shy young curate and then the higher clergy are gravely revealed.

Buck U Uppo
One of Wodehouse's best characters, read by the best Wodehouse narrator.
I usually stick to the Jeeves/Wooster stories but decided to try this after reading Christopher Hitchens' recommendation in his collection "Arguably".
Try it, you won't be disappointed.
