    Statesman, inventor, and humorist, Benjamin Franklin had an alter ego, Richard Saunders. It was this alter ego that would write the Poor Richard's Almanack. From the pithy sayings found in the many volumes of the almanack Franklin composed this story as a tongue in cheek digest of one old man who captured every bit of wisdom he could from Poor Richard and shared it liberally with an audience just before an auction.
