Mark Twain Surprisingly Hunky For A Dead Guy

By: Daniel Villarreal

Some of you like your shirtless literary icons to be barrel-chested and overcompensatory like Ernest Hemingway.

But we're loving this newly discovered pic of Mark Twain shirtless — just get a load of his pompadour, bushy stache and hairy man pies — he's in pretty good shape for a 19th-century pencil pusher.

All you English majors out there can print this out, post it above your desk and make goo-goo eyes at Samuel Clemens (Twain's real name) anytime you have writer's block and need a witty, Yankee daddy to help inspire you.
