Her name, like the others, lends itself to a pun. That’s why I included her.
However, a lot of people have gotten all up in a snit because they don’t believe she’s worthy of being included alongside Twain, Fitzgerald, and Hemingway. These people seem to think this is some kind of award or praise, but in reality it’s just authors whose names fit easily into puns. I would never knowingly praise Ernest Hemingway.

I thoroughly enjoy this list. If you get a time machine, I might have to accompany you just to punch ernest hemingway and help destroy the set of New Girl

i approve of the hemingway punching
Note: I’m excluding really obvious stuff like “Punch out John Wilkes Booth” and “Kill baby Hitler,” you know, things that would so severely change history that I’d have to re-take all my history classes.
It was like God read my mind in the present day, thought “what features would cause Dan to immediately dislike him?” and then went back around 20 years and created THAT EXACT DUDE and set him on a path to one day meet me. The features are as follows:
Here is why those things bother me. Every part of his appearance is specially designed to make people think he’s tough and manly.
I’m sure he’s a great guy. I might even talk to him and find he’s super cool and we’ll end up awesome best friends. There’s always a chance of that. However, he made an incredibly bad first impression. Any one of these characteristics individually would be fine, possibly even charming, depending on the person. However, all four of them in one person observed simultaneously upon our first meeting was just unsettling for me.
