On Your Mark, Get Set, TWAIN!

Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain
Sometimes my smartness astounds me. 

Take this morning for example:

I was playing along with the 7:40 Challenge on B98.7 while on my drive in to work. They ask five questions and you have five seconds to answer each question.  In order to win you need to get at least 3 of the 5 questions correct.  You have to be quick.  You have to be fast.  You have to be smart. 

One of the questions this morning was, "What great American author wrote the novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?"

My immediate response?  "Samuel Clemens!"

P.S.  Have you ever read his Diaries of Adam and Eve?  It is absolutely delightful!

Way to go to know both of Mark Twain's names. Did the person on the radio know that name as well? I like your new format better. I have to say that I liked your Chinese influenced one the best. Sorry that is probably mean of me to say. But, I like this new one. :)
