Remember when Twain made a cushy living for twenty years, making fun of badly copy-edited advertisements – with the mistakes circled in red so his audience would be sure to get the joke?

Apparently I care more about Mark Twain's legacy than the Kennedy Center does.

But then, Twain only invented American literature nearly single-handedly, while Leno did video sidewalk interviews with random people to make fun of how much less they knew than his audience did, and screwed over the careers of two comedians who were each far more talented than he.

So, you know, naturally.
