Charles Farrar Browne, writing under the pen name of Artemus Ward, developed a satirical approach that poked fun at his straitlaced contemporaries. In his antebellum columns and letters in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, he gained a reputation as a humorist and a debunker whose pun-ridden, misspelled and ungrammatical accounts made readers, including a war-burdened Abraham Lincoln, laugh. He also became a deadpan-comedian lecturer of renown.
