I Can’t Wait To See Their “21st Century” Edition Of The Bible

I’m sure they’ll remove all mention of God so as not to offend

What is a word worth? According to Publishers Weekly, NewSouth Books’ upcoming edition of Mark Twain’s seminal novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn will remove all instances of the “n” word—I’ll give you a hint, it’s not nonesuch—present in the text and replace it with slave. The new book will also remove usage of the word Injun. The effort is spearheaded by Twain expert Alan Gribben, who says his PC-ified version is not an attempt to neuter the classic but rather to update it. “Race matters in these books,” Gribben told PW. “It’s a matter of how you express that in the 21st century.”

This may be the only time you will ever here me approvingly quote Pa. Gov. Ed Rendell, but what a freakin’ bunch of wussies we’ve become.

    It is deplorable, but the alternative is to not have kids read it at all because of the PC police.

    I think we should instead burn down the schools.

    “Burn schools, not books!”

    Out to the barricades, Skyler!

    “Burn schools, not books” I’m not sure the newest Supreme Court Justice would approve of that order of preference.

    Say, what’s Mr. Gribben’s view of the “Washington REDSKINS”? Or the well known face of the Cleveland Indians-Chief Wahoo? Scholar that.

    Maybe we can turn the Bible into a caroon strip.

    Strangely enough, there are “cartoon” versions of the Bible out there. I don’t think they’re as sanitized as AoHF will be, though.

    Next they will take the N-word out of “To Kill a Mockingbird” old Bob Uell saying “you field hand lover” just doesn’t resonate. What a bunch or retards. Oops, can’t say that can I?

  6. Yojimbo says:

    You can use “retard” in a bowling context and your a President with a “D” after your name. Otherwise, not so much.

    Look on the bright side – now we can watch the entirety of Blazing Saddles in 17 minutes.

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    True, ‘Fly, but they’ll still say “No Irish!”
