Daniel Galef  by bigpulp

Daniel Galef was born in a log cabin he built himself in Tehawxey, Mississippi, where he spent his formative years as a subbookkeeper, tracking down and assassinating patrons with overdue loans. In the mid-19th century, he located the Fountain of Youth and made his second million bottling and carbonating the water. Immediately before the Crash, he retired to a humble life selling bags of peanuts on the Trans-Siberian Railway. He died in 1892 in a tragic crossword accident and has written only two books since, preferring to spend his time holding his breath for charity and autographing baseballs as Napoleon III.
