Nudie pic of Mark Twain

If The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn didn’t put hair on your chest, perhaps this semi-nude pic of one of America’s great thinkers will.

According to NPR:

Open Culture dug up an old picture of Mark Twain, who clearly did not heed his own (possibly apocryphal) advice: “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

Timeless (and too often unheeded) advice from a great man.

Go ahead, give in to temptation and pin that beauty on its own board.

Full story at NPR.

The manly man behind the writing.
