What American historical figure wrote and published "Poor Richard's Almanac"?
'Phone a Friend' lifeline used
• A: Ben Franklin • B: William Penn
• C: Nathan Hale • D: Mark Twain
Wanting to burn another lifeline, Meredith used her Phone-a-Friend lifeline to call her cousin, John, who said the answer was A: Ben Franklin, and that he was positive. That brought Meredith $8k. Just for reference, I would not have used the Phone-a-Friend; I would recall from Epic Rap Battle of History #10 when Vince Offer said the line, "Your style's so broke, they call you Poor Richard! It’s bad enough I gotta see you every time I tip a stripper!" That mention of "Poor Richard" would lead to easily answering the question without using a lifeline.
