    Mark Twain was a genius. His works are not only hilarious, but they also convey a deep meaning that comes from the curious philosophy in which he saw the world around him.

    This work, for example, seems to be a funny joke, a satire. It seems absurd, and yet, after finishing it I am utterly convinced that he is right.
