10. "Right Ho, Jeeves," by P. G. Wodehouse (1934)

Including what is arguably the most hilarious scene in any of Wodehouse's works – Gussie Fink-Nottle's drunken speech at the Market Snodsbury Grammar School – this nutty farce follows Bertie Wooster and his talented servant Jeeves as they plot to make Cupid's arrows hit desired hearts. Newt-loving Gussie Fink-Nottle and saggy Madeline Basset may seem an implausible match. But, following a succession of mild confusions, Bertie and Jeeves just might prove themselves able to do the impossible.
