Two men were admiring the architecture of the new college campus building named, 'The Hemingway Hall of Arts.'

"It's great to see people will name buildings after famous writers like Ernest Heminway," one man says.

"Oh, the building's not named after Ernest Hemingway. It's named after Joshua Hemingway. No relation," the second man answered.

"Oh, really? Was Joshua Hemingway a writer?" the first asked.

"Yes, indeed." the second man answered, grinning. "He wrote a check."
