Stupid Sexy Mark Twain

I found this picture I took in Lincoln, NH in late 2008. We were waiting for it to be 3:00pm so we could see the dancing bear show. I was looking at something boring in a fairly boring museum and Jon said “Do you want to see Mark Twain with his shirt off?”

How can you say no to that? Still, it’s baffling. Why does such a picture exist? And why is it at a museum with a dancing bear attraction in northern northern almost-Canada, New Hampshire?

Anyway, here’s a picture of Mark Twain with his shirt off. Handsome Handsome!
