Unfortunately, I Really Am That Nerdy

(Insert Loud Scream Or Roar Here)

I have gotten stuck on the absolute last question on my literature test. I have been asked to describe the "Simon Wheeler" of Mark Twain's unforgettable "The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County."

But I've always sucked at reading between the lines, and this is no exception. They want his education level, his attire... all these little things not stated.

Aargh... pointless literary analysis questions! I really can't imagine that half the skills you learn are actually any conceivable use in the real world. If I read a book, I just want to enjoy it, not study the significance of the change of the colour of Mr. Jones' bow tie which is hinted at by comparing it to a stormy night in a footnote on page 232.

Good luck, anyway!
