Humor of Tour Guides by Mark Twain

Humor of Tour Guides by Mark Twain is adapted from his book A Tramp Abroad [1880]:

Within a hundred years after Adam left Eden,

the guide probably gave the usual general flourish with his hand and said:

"Place where the animals were named, ladies and gentlemen;

place where the tree of the forbidden fruit stood;

exact spot where Adam and Eve first met."
