The unforgiving minute: Short answers to simple questions*

Incredibly, wasted pixels today on this:

Is Will Ferrell the New Mark Twain?

Answer: No. No he isn't.

(And the same could be said for most of the other winners of the Mark Twain Prize, but that's another story.)

Hemingway said that Twain invented the American novel with “Huckleberry Finn.” Think anyone will say anything remotely comparable about Ferrell a hundred years from now?

*All internet traditions respected.

Minute's up.

Matt Groening should have won before Tina Fey and Will Farrell.
