Farewell, my friend (or how to strain a friendship)

On September 27, 1929 Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms was published.  According to legend, Hemingway sent a draft of the novel to his friend F. Scott Fitzgerald who returned it to Hemingway with nine pages of suggested revisions.

Hemingway made a note at the bottom of the last page of Fitzgerald's suggestions.  It read,

Kiss my ass.

We *heart* Hemingway.
