”You never see a frog so modest and straightforward as he was, for all he was so gifted. And when it come to fair and square jumping on a dead level, he could get over more ground at one straddle than any animal of his breed you ever see. Jumping on a dead level was his strong suit, you understand; and when it come to that, Smiley would ante up money on him as long as he had a red.”
Citerat ur ”The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” av Mark Twain. Det luktar Södern lång väg om denna underbara skröna, lite i Fritiof Nilsson Piratens anda, som delvis är skriven på dialekt. Riktigt underhållande.
