9/20-Trivia

?? 9/20
Did you know...
The Myth: Mark Twain said, "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."

The Fact: Twain said, "The report of my death was an exaggeration." In 1897 it was reported that his cousin, James Ross Clemens, was near death, and somewhere along the line the newspapers started saying that Twain himself was gravely ill. So he cleared it up with a reporter. While writing his autobiography years later, Twain revised his own statement, adding the "greatly" to make it sound better.

1. In an episode of "Cheers", which character appeared on the game show, JEOPARDY ?
