The Damned Human Race

  1. Sep 22, 2011 #1
    I thought Penguino, Evo and others might enjoy this amazing performance of an excerpt from Mark Twain's essay: "The Damned Human Race".

    It's just a rant, but so entertainingly done I could say it's a demonstration of "The Art of Rant".

    A double negative makes a positive?

    Evo, I know you would especially like Twain's "Letters from the Earth". You can find several readings on youtube, or if you prefer the printed version, on Gutenberg. These purport to be letters writen by Satan to Michael and Gabriel concerning his fact-finding visit to the earth.
