Controversy erupted recently over a new edition of Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”, which purports to make this classic of American literature more acceptable in today’s school curriculums by deleting the so-called “N-Word”, which appears over 200 times in the original text.
Intrigued by this concept, and sensing an exciting marketing opportunity, Puzzled Squirrel Press slapped together it's own unique new edition of Huck Finn, which goes even further in updating this great but flawed masterpiece to suit modern sensibilities. In addition to replacing all instances of you-know-what as "The N-Word", it boldly tackles and neutralizes hot-button topics like teen smoking, ageism, gay-bashing, abuse of Native-Americans, and much more! And to make it even more "relevant," a special appearance by Pop Music sensation Justin Bieber as Tom Sawyer! Mark Twain was justly famous for his mastery of American dialects, and this edition adds yet another - later 20th-century PC-speak!
“The New, Improved Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” is guaranteed less offensive than all other editions combined! Using state-of-the-art word processing technology, we have spared all expense to lovingly craft the “Huckleberry Finn” that Mark Twain would almost certainly write if he were alive today, and had a lobotomy.
