That was mildly amusing.  Not as much as the real Mark Twain's review of the book of Mormon (google it for lulz), but not bad, I guess.

I still haven't read his autobiography.

Got dammit, I'm getting backlogged on my reading.

He stood on a Tesla pad until he had to defecate.
 Sam Clemens was awesome.

Guess they didn't want just one video for the day so tossed this in.

That was pretty dumb.
If anything Twain would be all over Twitter.

Thanks, I didn't know that existed.  Much of it sounds similar to folks today who don't believe in the BofM, but that doesn't deter me.  I too didn't trust the BofM, so I get how folks feel.  What I found most interesting was his take on polygamy, to get a view from a non church member who lived during those days.  He managed to collaborate the other stories of how polygamy didn't start in the Mormon Church till after Joseph Smith's death.  He even used some of the same scripture that I have used to show the separation between the BofM and the actions of Brigham's Mormons.  To answer his last statement, the BofM wasn't meant to replace the Old and New Testament.  It is for further witness, as MT's quotes also shows how the BofM gives explanation to some confusing parts of the Old Testament.

/If MT lived long enough, he would've learned of physical artifacts giving credence to the BofM's stories.
//Sorry if I got too excited, I always wondered how folks like MT thought of the Mormons
///I was a huge MT fan during hs, and this video sucks, MT would've been pissier and grumpier.

I shut it down the very instant I heard banjos.

Why on earth do people assume Mark Twain had a southern accent? I lived in MO for a few months, quite a ways south of Hannibal, and rarely encountered anyone with a southern or even remotely southern accent. If anything Mark Twain would have likely had a Midland accent (i.e. no accent) or possibly Ozark.
