Donald Trump (an American "prince" of sorts) played a pauper turned prince
loosely based on Mark Twain's famous novel on Saturday Night Live April 3rd.
Mark Twain & The Prince and The Pauper were appropriately credited at the
end of the parody by showing a book closing to reveal the front cover which
displayed the title & author.

On a different note I failed to mention something regarding Mark Twain's
guitar in a previous posting.  Namely that Paine wrote that Orion recorded a
time in 1856 when "There was an old guitar in the office and Sam taught
Fritz a song" which resulted in young Sam's hand being mutilated in
retaliation.  This is the most direct evidence I have located that Twain
ever held a guitar in his hand.
