Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
*sporfle!*

I love Mark Twain.

I think he'd be a member of Fandom_Wank.

I love that the man provides me with evidence of complex punctuation in the most straightforward of ways. I can almost never find an example of how to use more than one semi-colon in a sentence correctly, but Twain illustrates this concept here:

"It has no invention; it has no order, system, sequence, or result; it has no lifelikeness, no thrill, no stir, no seeming of reality; its characters are confusedly drawn, and by their acts and words they prove that they are not the sort of people the author claims that they are; its humor is pathetic; its pathos is funny; its conversations are -- oh! indescribable; its love-scenes odious; its English a crime against the language."

And God, can he sling the shit.

Him and Cicero. Lovely, well read, well written snark. Gotta love it :)

I'd never seen that. Bwah.
