image for WTF**K: Mark Twain Should Have Used **tericks With N*gg*r And Inj*n Call A Spade A Spade

Galloping political correctness has deemed that Mark Twain's classic novel, Huckleberry Finn, contains inappropriate words describing African Americans and American Indians.

Although this book has been read by millions of school children and is on the shelves of most libraries, today Mark Twain is being scorned for allowing his characters to use the dialects and words common in his day.

Though Twain was possibly the most politically savvy man of his age, even he would be flabbergasted by today's blabber about rewriting his books and substituting "slave" for "nigger." In his time, not all blacks were slaves; so using this word as a substitute wouldn't have made sense then, and even less now.

WTF**K! Will the last ***hole standing, please turn out the lights.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
