Mister Ron's Basement #199

Mark Twain left behind a large selection of great stories that were not published until after his death in 1910. Most appropriately, this hilarious article originally run in the Buffalo Express in 1889 appeared in a book for the first time in 1919, -- 'Last Words of Great Men.'

Incidentally, Twain's actual last words, written on a piece of paper, were 'Give me my glasses.'
