My friend's wife had a liver transplant and enough time has passed  
that they feel very confident there will be no rejection.  Therefore I  
gave him a copy of Twain's "Love Song."  I'm familiar with Twain's  
remarks in the "Austrian Health Factory" piece, but is there any other  
known premise that I can share with my friend that also helps explain  
his making fun of the liver ?
