Analysis of Mark Twain Across almost all of Mark Twain's many works there is humor and what fuels that humor is implausibility. In "The Celebrated Frog of Calaveras County" there is a high degree of implausibility throughout the story.

In Mark Twain's story the passage that best seems to support his implausibility pattern is the passage in which the frog, Daniel Webster is introduced.
