Controversy erupted recently over a new edition of Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” It attempts 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, We at Puzzled Squirrel slapped together our own exclusive edition of Huck Finn, which goes even further in updating this great but flawed masterpiece to suit modern sensibilities.

“The New, Improved Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” the exclusive new eBook from Puzzled Squirrel Press, is guaranteed to be significantly less offensive than all other brands combined! Using the latest 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.
Like the NewSouth edition, we too have replace “That Word We Mean When We Say ‘The N-Word’” with “N-Word”. But that’s not all! We address head-on such hot-button issues as:
- TEEN SMOKING!
- STEREOTYPING OF NATIVE AMERICANS!
- INTERRACIAL SEX!
- AND MUCH MORE!
