MARK TWAIN ON HUMOR







(And he didn't even know how the Democratic and Republican primaries would play out in 2016.)


Mark Twain’s wife Livy once became frustrated with the great author’s propensity for profanity. 

To illustrate what she had to endure, the normally pious-tongued woman cut loose with a blue streak for the ages. 

There, she told her husband when she was done, “Now you know just how you sound.” 

Sadly, Twain shook his head and said that it pained him to think he sounded like that, because “You got the words right Livy, but you don’t know the tune.”
