Twas in the year 1877 and in Dundee's holiday week
When a weaver named McGonagall began his fortune for to seek
He took his pen and wrote a verse about Gilfillan of Dundee
And thus began a career of great notoriety
For William's muse drew him to write on subjects grave and sad
And the fruits of his labours were so uniformly bad
That many men of learning are often heard to say
That McGonagall is quite the worst poet of his own or any other day
If you read his dreadful verse, you'll find after a while
That upon your lips you'll scarce be able to suppress a smile
So three cheers for McGonagall, Poet and Tragedian
Bonny Dundee's favourite son, and finest of comedians.
-- Chris Hunt, category editor
(after William McGonagall)

Born on November 8, 1900, Margaret 'Peggy' Mitchell is the celebrated Pulitzer Prize winning author of 'Gone With The Wind'.
A journalist and newswoman in Atlanta, Georgia, Mitchell wrote the majority of the novel from 1926 until 1929 while she was recuperating from a broken ankle in the small apartment she shared with her second husband. Wanting to keep her writing efforts a secret from her friends, she would cover her Remington typewriter and loose papers with a towel whenever guests would visit.
A fourth-generation Atlantan, Mitchell briefly attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. She was married twice. Once to Berrien Kinnard Upshaw and once to John Robert Marsh. An intelligent, spirited woman, Mitchell spent much of her post-novel life fiercely protecting the copyright of 'Gone With The Wind'. Mitchell died on August 16, 1949 after being hit by a taxi. Per her request, the original manuscript was destroyed except for a few pages.
As of 2006, the book has sold over 30,000,000 copies sold worldwide.
