Reasons Ernest Hemingway is Cooler Than You

Hemingway is one cool freakin’ dude. A renowned literary badass, he could literally wipe the floor clean with the likes of Nicholas Sparks and Janet Evanovich. That was a man who lived his writing. And when his life wasn’t interesting enough, he went out and threw himself head first into war zones and battlefields. But in recent years, Hemingway’s basassery has not fared as well in cinema and television. He’s basically been broken down into a series of costume choices and key phrases and actions. All of these things are essentially “Hemingwayian”, yet at the same time extremely trite and generic.

So I’m going to help you out if you ever find yourself in a situation wondering whether or not the person you are talking or if you yourself are in fact Ernest Hemingway.

Are you Ernest Hemingway Question List:

Do you have a mustache?

Are you with a woman who is self-assured and possibly wearing high waisted pants?

Are you drinking copiously?

Are you smoking a cigar?

Are you playing Russian roulette with an actual Russian?

Still Drinking?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may or may not be or be with Ernest Hemingway. I suggest you tread lightly as he is prone to comic and over-exaggerated outbursts.
