But the 1,000 you have already purchased will suffice.

HERE IS THE MYSTERY IMAGE. It is a picture of a robot Mark Twain talking to a robot Benjamin Franklin.

CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, the actual corpses of Twain and Franklin were not made into robots for this popular exhibit in Florida.

WHICH IS TO SAY rumors of the robotic reanimation of Twain's corpse have been highly exaggerated.

That is all.

See you tonight. And/or tomorrow night in Brookline.

How many Bothans died to bring you this information?

you mean i bought those last five copies for nothing? curse those scurrilous cads at the penguin group! they've deceived me for the last time!

i made a tiny clay replica of mark twain for a fifth-grade english project, precisely because his corpse was unavailable. if i could have gotten my hands on it, though, those rumors would be right on the money.
