The strangest epidemic has swept across the South - a curiously invasive plague that has wiped out every "N" word in Mark Twain's immortal, beloved HuckleBerry Finn. Gone from the text, completely eradicated with little hope for resurrection, are the words, "no", "never", "naive", "neighbor","nixed", "national", "nervous", "next", "nitwitted", "nincompoop", "napalm" and another "n" word , somewhat unpleasant sounding but understandably indicative of its time, "neo-nazi", the dreaded double "N" word that curiously never appeared in the original text anyway. But good riddance to it, the sheep bleat! No lamb of theirs will ever have to endure its' foul and corrupting influence.
Many say they'll continue to enjoy their favorite Twain masterpiece, even after this vicious and inexplicable purging of the innocent "N's". I, for one, say (n)o! I will (n)ever read what my (n)aive (n)eighbor (n)ixes from a (n)ational treasure, it makes me far too (n)ervous of what comes (n)ext when a (n)itwitted (n)incompoop can (n)apalm a bonified classic. Bloody (N)eo (N)azis.
