This is The Greatest Quote in All History.

There are three kinds of lies:  lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Until ten minutes ago it was merely one of Mark Twain’s immortal quips.  But Wikipedia says that Twain denied the quote, attributing it to Benjamin Disraeli.  There is no proof of that claim, anywhere.   

When you or I come up with a great line we want credit for it, if only for T-shirt sales.  But Mark Twain not only created the definitive quote on lying…he lied about where it came from.

Mark Twain was a badass.
